I joined the computer industry at a time when a multi-million
dollar installation had a massive two and a half megabytes of
memory and you needed forearms like Popeye to change a disk
pack. Two hundred megs of online storage provided by a drive
unit the size of a chest freezer, sitting with so many other similarly

edition of Marketing Management, published in 1967, introduced the concept that
companies must be customer-and-market driven. But there was little mention of what have
