Mike Lynch, Autonomy CEO. Doesn't this guy look frighteningly smart, in a Lex Luthor, Professor Moriarty, Macavity kind of way? I rest my case.
Software with a Funny Accent. Autonomy Corporation
is UK’s largest software company (market capitalization of $4Bn). It was founded in 1996 by Mike Lynch (E.E. Ph.D.)
