Now we know why the Kent deal failed. This new guy made it to number 6 in the best earning CIO ranking of 2005. (There's a picture as well.) so he won't work for free.

2006 CIO Compensation Survey: Million-Dollar Club
Slide Title:

No. 6
Fran Dramis
BellSouth
Chief Information, E-Commerce and Security Officer

Total 2005 Compensation: $3,763,100
Salary: $614,000
Bonus: $700,000
Other: $2,449,100

Hope this new guy has got solid brain, good diplomatic capabilities and kicka** ideas for the Amiga!

I hope that this man could get an extra-judiciary agreement with Hyperion, so the trial situation will end up.

It is very difficult to find people capable to get Bill Mc. Ewen and Ben Herman to reasoning as normal people.

Good luck for the new job as Amiga is an harsh market item!

That story is so full of B.S. . . . I want what they are smoking, as I would like to have delusions of grandeur too.

#6 to the mad house . . .

I always knew number6 was up to something. I'm sure he will enjoy working for Pentti.

@wolfe

I have a feeling this bubbling bunch of bull is probably just ad copy written by their advertising division, and has nothing to do with his actual feelings about the Amiga. He probably had no input into what it said.

Where was the technology before?
