Phoenix - How we were then
« on: May 10, 2003, 10:19:10 PM »
I've just been flicking through the C.S.A.M archives on and off today. I do this a couple of times a year, it usually give me an insight into the politics behind the drivel.

Anyways, I was looking through the stuff from the Gateway era, when I came across an announcement from the Phoenix Consortium.

I can tell you for one thing that it's about three times larger now.  :-)

But how many of the original members on that list are still active?

Also I wonder what the atmosphere would be like in a "Class of 99" style reunion  :-o

The membership reflects the shift of activity away from Amiga, Inc. and QNX and toward Genesi. There's still a significant number of people from the early days, but not necessarily those directly employed by companies on paths that didn't parallel Phoenix's direction. In most cases (the noteable exception being Amiga, Inc. itself, probably -- though with things being as tumultous as they've been lately, who knows?) bridges haven't been burned, though, and it's possible there could be cooperation again at some point in the future with whoever's traveling the same road.

As for a reunion, it's hard to predict human behavior, especially in groups. I guess there'd be either 1) sulking partisans holed up in separate parts of the room, 2) open warfare (food fights, fist fights, etc.) or 3) lots of beers and laughing all around. Your guess is as good as mine.  :-)

I'd say option 3. People tend to react way more emotional on the internet. With someone in their face people are usually a bit more empathic.

I'd say 1, until the beer started flowing, then 3, then as more beer flowed 2! ;-)
