"Cornell is WIRED!"

Interesting details about what killed Microsoft's Courier tablet plans! It is interesting to find out Cornell had a role. Go Big Red!


"Just about the same time, Sinofsky, five years into his Microsoft tenure, was working as Gates' technical assistant. He had a revelation on a recruiting trip to his alma mater, Cornell University. While there, he watched students using e-mail and checking course lists on the Web. He sent a breathless e-mail to Gates upon his return with the heading, "Cornell is WIRED!," urging his boss to embrace the Web. Back then, the company turned to both Sinofsky and Allard to help create Microsoft's initial Internet strategy."
