Happy birthday Notes

Twenty years ago (almost) today, Lotus Notes was officially born. It made its debut in the market place (almost) fifteen years ago today, a cross-platform (DOS and OS/2 for both client and server) new-fangled groupware app, derived from the amazing, revolutionary PLATO system developed in the early 1960s. Without further ado, let me offer some links: onwards!

Happy birthday to Lotus Notes, and a hearty “thanks” to Ray Ozzie and fellow visionaries.
