Ok, this has absolutely NOTHING to do with X1/9′s but I met Mr. Ross Perot today. I’m working on a project in conjunction with Perot Systems and this week I flew to Plano, Texas to the headquarters of Perot to participate in the first round of integrated testing of the new system. I was told that Mr. Perot eats lunch with the rest of the employees in the cafeteria, but saw it first hand when I sat across from his table during lunch yesterday. Today, I was able to catch up with in the corridor as he was walking back to his office from lunch as asked if we may have a photo together. He was more than happy to. Afterwards, we shook hands and parted ways.
Mr. Perot is currently ranked 57 on Forbes Richest Americans at $4.3B. After meeting him in person, you wouldn’t know it. He’s a really nice, talkative gentleman.
