Microsoft then and now

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 23, 2008

The iconic photo from 1978 of Microsoft’s founders and early employees has been reshot.

Present for the reunion was office manager Miriam Lubow (center of new picture), who missed the original sitting due to a snowstorm. (When Lubow, now retired, first met Gates, she couldn’t believe that disheveled kid was the president.) Absent for the reshoot was Bob Wallace (top center), who died in 2002; after leaving Microsoft in 1983, he pioneered the idea of shareware.

They should submit this to Ze Frank’s Youngme/Nowme.
