HP

The famous garage in Addison Avenue is only a couple of blocks away from my place, and I would put a picture here, if there were anything special to see about it, but there’s just a plaque (‘birthplace of Silicon Valley’); and any garage in the whole town looks the same anyway. I have a couple of friends working at HP, and the funniest thing I heard from them about the whole Fiorina-affair was the following (similar to a comment made by Dan Gillmor): HP should spin out its printing division (the only one that is making money), hire Michael Capellas as CEO and rename itself ‘Compaq’. Meanwhile, the spun-out printing division should merge with Agilent and rename itself ‘HP’ (Agilent being of course the test & measurement equipment part of HP that was spun out ages ago).
