The Internet was just unfolding and I starting spending more and more time on it,it was interesting.It was interesting to see these little companies getting started.Two of my colleagues from Stanford had gone to start Y! and i thought this was just .."Wow! . . . . . . . . Somebody put one million in them.I mean that was huge. So I thought the internet is here to stay and I started playing around with it and came up with the idea to do simple-to-install database at the back end.Then you'd use the browser at the front end.It could store any piece of information at the back, but the browser would be used to display it.

I wrote a business plan and did'nt know what to do with it.I was the only guy,so how do u build a company?I knew Jack and Knew that he was a great software and hardware engineer.So i shared this idea with him.He read the business plan and said the next day .. " This is great, Where do I sign?"

Who is sharing his idea with us? Id X- the speaker.. and Y
