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.), billionaire entrepreneur called by the Sunday Times the nearest thing Britain has to Bill Gates. Autonomy’s Bayesian search engines outperform their Google and Microsoft counterparts in certain markets such as lucrative legal and corporate searches. They read data in hundreds of formats (including text, visual and sound ones) and try to connect and interpret it.
