Rackspace Founded

Found this photo as I was digging through some boxes.

Rackspace is Signed

The Rackspace deal-makers… from left to right – Morris Miller, Dirk Elmendorf, Richard Yoo, and Pat Condon. Our lawyers were also there, working very hard in the background. (Thanks to Daryl Lansdale for shooting the photo for us. πŸ˜€ )

The six of us probably were together daily for weeks. In fact, if I remember correctly, Morris was working on our deal while his wife was giving birth! (For the record, both the baby and mother did fine. :))

The photo was stamped 12/30/98 – but I can assure you that the process of getting the final documents signed started the evening before. In fact, I think we were locked in the law office from 9:00pm the previous night. It sounds rough, but I remember it very fondly. πŸ˜€
