RE: DEC, not Digital -- doing the right thing: an experiment in human engineering
"... Compaq bought Digital. DEC was never for sale."
I hope that your book is not going to have a tone of post-Olsen DEC (or
Digital?) bashing. I agree with the essence of your introduction except for
one thing. You refer to "DEC" in the past tense! In my opinion, "DEC" as you
define it is still very much surviving in the current company. Sure, the VAX
cash-cow glory days are history, but the people and the culture are still very
much alive in many parts of Compaq.
Best of luck with your book. I will be looking forward to reading it.
PS... some interesting slightly related history:
