I met Jim in about when Dell was just a few months old. By then, Jim had a reputation as one of technology's thought leaders, and I couldn't believe my great fortune when he took me under his wing and liberally shared his insights to the world of technology I was entering. Jim was brilliant and used LP intellectual horsepower to generate, simplify and interpret complicated ideas. He had an intuitive sense for technology and the marketplace -- what would work, and what mattered to customers.
And above all, Jim was direct. He told it like it was, and there was no better sounding board for a young kid with a young company and a great big dream.
