It’s 6:02am, a cool winter morning in Friedrichshafen, Germany. It’s dark night outside.My friend Richard Luft, our partner at www.bytec.eu, told me he would pick me up at 6:00am at the hotel. I looked out through the window and while I couldn’t see the Lake Constanze, I could see his car right there, of course, and I knew I was very late now. I rushed up and by 6:04 I sat in, apologizing for my tardiness. “No problem” he said, “I used this time to buy a ticket online for a show that I saw advertised in one of the major TV channels, by the way,did you know that the biggest online ticket sales in Germany runs on Informix?”, I quickly replied “and did you know that that TV channel is part of the biggest TV group and it also runs in Informix?”.
