in Internet Hall of Fame 2014

I remem­ber a day quite some time ago—I think it must have been 2001 or so, when I was here for a con­fer­ence and I looked at the dis­play of one of these elec­tron­ics shops and I saw thir­ty dif­fer­ent brands of MP3 play­ers. So I said okay, final­ly we got the break­through, now every­body uses it.

Thanks goes to every­body who helped to spread the tech­nol­o­gy. Okay, no. There’s one guy I won’t thank, and that’s the one who used a stolen cred­it card num­ber to buy our soft­ware and then spread it claim­ing it’s free. He did help us, but still I don’t thank him.
