Description

Representatives of many HP software companies and representatives from HP discuss a wide range of subjects related to founding and funding their companies. They discuss the various systems and applications programs that they designed and built. They talk about why they chose to use HP computers and they relationships with HP. There is some discussion of the size of the companies and the effectiveness of remaining small. And there was an extensive discussion about INTEREX which became both a technological interchange as well as a marketing vehicle for the software companies. There are also comments about the HP hardware and the HP systems software and porting some of the HP products to other platforms.
