Benson's Cycle

History

Back in the early 1990s a relative applied for a senior technical position at Microsoft. After seeing around the place he turned it down because he thought they would soon be out of business because they had no concept of security and no concept of structured APIs.

He was of course right, he just didn't realise it would not stop them.
