Hi, I’m Jack. I worked for IBM for 28 years on various projects dealing with Museums and Libraries. I have travelled all over the world and have seen the diversity of our world. Currently, I am volunteering P/T at the Westchester Archives. From that moment forward, Bill Gates lived n the computer room. He and a number of others began to teach themselves how to use this strange new device. Buying time on the mainframe computer the ASR was hooked up to was expensive – even for a wealthy institution like Lakeside – and it wasn’t long before the $3,000 put up by the Mothers’ Club ran out. The parents raised more money. The students spent it. Then a group of programmers at the University of Washington formed an outfit called Computer Center Corporation (C-cubed) which leased computer time to local companies. As luck would have it, one of the founders of the firm, Monique Roca, had a son at Lakeside a year ahead of Gates. Would the lakeside computer club, Rona wondered, like to test out the company’s software programs on the weekends in exchange for free programming time? Absolutely! After school, Gates took the bus to the C-Cubed offices and programmed long into the evening.
In this banking sector, boutiques don’t take a back seat to their bigger brethren, even if they don’t bring billions in financing commitments to the deal table to finance major mergers. Evercore, Lazard, Centerview and Perella Weinberg are in the top 15.
And as we pull into the drive we realize we were correct, the grass does not need cut; however, the weeds are more than a foot high. I’m not sure how this phenomenon actually materializes. How can it be that the grass does not grow at all, but the weeds look awful? I suppose if we’d spent more money on better grass seed, the lawn wouldn’t look so bad. As it is we (OK, my husband) must spend all afternoon cutting grass that doesn’t really need cut in order to cut down the weeds so the yard will look decent.
