I had hoped to find quite a few videos on YouTube that I would be able to share with you. This was the only one I managed to locate so far.
Good video. IF you have never met the great man this video will give you a very good feel as to his personality. As you will hear he was very soft spoken with a noticeable Scandinavian accent though he was born in South Dakota. He was also a very gentle man albeit with an iron resolve which you could sometimes clearly see in his eyes. Always very deliberate and thoughtful in what he says.
1984. Watch the video. He got the PC architecture part 100% right! Wow.
Now listen to Lore Harp at the 3:13 mark. Listen to what she has to say about PC CLONE vendors. Wow, talking about getting something WRONG. Great contrast here. Gene gets it right and she is dead wrong. Funny.
I, as you can see, as is my wont, is trying to pull together as much media of Gene in one place for future reference. IF you have any photos or videos of Gene that you would like to SHARE please let me know. I will work with you. Thank you.

A friend of mine, a veteran of the Middle East, gave me a heads up on this via an e-mail. His subject line just said “OMG …“. Since I know his idiosyncratic sense of humor I knew it was going to be good.
Didn’t realize that it was that good.
But, to be fair, it is possible that most Arabic men are NOT that familiar with the detailed anatomy of their females. I really don’t know much about them, but I get the feeling that they probably are not into …
And, then AGAIN.
As an expert on Cathedral architecture … there has always been this … and it is explained off as being what it really is supposed to be … welcoming you to enter the … again. Check it out. I kid you not. When I explain this to women they are shocked … because they had never realized it before … but as soon as you point it out … and some of them actually have a small projecting ‘nub’ at the apex (whereas this one just as a circle) ! It is so cute.
