Scott Beale shoots me (and I shoot him)

I met Scott Beale in the lobby here at the Bellevue Hyatt (we’re in room 1514) and he shot me interviewing Doug Rowan, former CEO of Corbis (he now invests in photographic-centric companies like ZoomAlbum and Piczo). Then I turned the camera on Scott. Hopefully we’ll do a photowalking while here in Bellevue.

Doug told us about selling computers back in the 1960s for IBM that had 600 bytes of memory that cost millions of dollars (no hard drives, either!) That’s not gigabytes. It’s not megabytes. It’s not kilobytes. It’s bytes. How far we’ve come in one lifetime is simply amazing.

  1. 600 bytes? I think the little red lights that sparkle in my 3-year old’s Cinderella tennis shoes each has more than that. No tape drive with those, though. Not in the standard version, anyway.
