When I left the project, I thought to myself: Within a year, they will replace all these programmers with lawyers. It took six months.

The whole thing ended in a torrent of litigation, which I mostly ignored. Even though my involvement with the project ended more than a decade ago, if I were to consult a lawyer, he would tell me to keep my mouth shut. I am going to save myself the legal fee and just follow the advice.

The family business was eventually bought by a competitor whose name you would certainly recognize. Received on Wed Apr 26 2006 - 20:02:20 CDT
