Kildall and IBM

I know it's late enough that probably no one will read this comment, but when I read this:

It is believed Kildall was actually flying with Godbout when IBM called Kildall's home

All I could think was "Thomson vs Orlowski: Fight!".

(Personally, I find the "Kildall was at the meeting" version of the story, as you describe it above, better supported by the evidence I've seen.)
