‘This week in History’ as seen in the Microsoft Daily..


I was browsing through the ‘Microsoft daily’ and came across this interesting trivia – Can you guess the kid in the picture? :))

In the world:

GatesPorzak_twih_215 December 1, 1990 — Workers tunnel through a wall of rock, connecting the two ends of the underwater tunnel linking Calais, France with Folkestone, England known as the Chunnel.

November 27, 1940 — Lee Yuen Kam is born. Later known as martial arts film star Bruce Lee, he died at the age of 32 of a brain edema.

At Microsoft:

November 29, 1979 — Microsoft announces it is expanding its service to the European market with the addition of Vector Microsoft, Haasrode, Belgium. James Porzak will head the new operation, which is a division of Vector International.

James Porzak is shown here with Bill Gates in the 10800 Northeast 8th office in Bellevue, WA on November 29, 1979. Porzak was one of four partners who founded Vector in 1977.
