Found this photo as I was digging through some boxes.
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. 😀 )
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. 😀
