About the author

I’m having trouble with static pages in WordPress right now, so I’ll just do the “About” pages for the blog inline as posts.

About the author

In the early and mid-1980s, Curt Monash was a top-ranked stock analyst covering software/computer services. “software and data services” in the early and mid-1980s. Since then, he has always been around the news of software and related industries — reporting it, analyzing it, predicting it, and sometimes even making it. Entrepreneurs and other luminaries with whom he’s been privileged to have instructive private conversations include Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Ross Perot, Mitch Kapor, Dan Fylstra, Ann Winblad, Mitchell Kertzman, John Doerr, Bill Janeway, Dave Duffield, John Imlay, John Maguire, John Cullinane, Rick Crandall, Marty Goetz, Steve Case, John Landry, Esther Dyson and many, many others. Fuller biographical information about Curt can be found on the “About” page for the Monash Report and at Curt’s Monash Information Services bio page; software industry leaders’ views of Curt may be seen on the Monash Information Services testimonials page. (Note: The Monash Information Services site hasn’t been updated for a while, and accordingly needs a bit of freshening.)

Curt’s views, including some historical observations, may also be found in the Monash Report (analysis of software and related industries), Text Technologies (covering text mining, search, speech recognition, text command-and-control, and other linguistics-related software sectors), and DBMS2 (covering developments in enterprise database management and XML-based SOAs).

Curt’s primary email address follows the template FirstnameLastname@Lastname.com , although disguising it that way is tantamount to closing the pantry door after the spam has already gotten in. Thus, please put a distinctive title on your email, so that your email won’t mistakenly be thrown out with the bad stuff. Mentioning “Software Memories Blog” would be one excellent idea.
