I'm feeling a bit nostalgic today for a few reasons -
- Earlier in the week, Ray Smelek - the man that brought HP to Boise - died at the age of 78. I didn't know Ray personally but in my early days of working in HP Storage, I was in reviews with Ray and did meet him several times. I also often saw him driving to or from work as we lived on the same side of Boise.
- I was at the HP Boise site earlier today and saw an article about an HP disk drive manufactured in Boise that was introduced in 1986. Not many people know that HP Storage used to be centered in Boise.
- While at the HP Boise site, I also saw HP's first laser printer (the HP 2680A) that I used to work on when I worked in the field for HP and was also designed and manufactured in Boise.
These all have had a major impact on me personally and are very much related so I wanted to touch on each.
