Old Home Week

Plan 9It’s like old home week here at ManeyDigital. Yesterday, someone I led PR for back in 2003 was named the 2011 Black Corporate Executive of the Year by Black Enterprise Magazine. Today, I see on Hacker News that someone found a way to run Inferno on Android.

For the non-geeks who read the blog, Inferno is an outgrowth of a distributed operating system I helped launch in the 1990s. It was called Plan 9 (yes, that Plan 9…Paul Fillinich was the marketing lead who made that magic happen) and was created by members of the Computing Science Research Center at Bell Labs — the same group that created UNIX: Rob Pike, Ken Thompson, Dave Presotto, Phil Winterbottom and Dennis Ritchie.
