Within the technology industry, the cycle of invention is captured in eras, from mainframe and mini, to PC, Internet, mobile and the cloud. Most within the industry move from wave to wave, hoping to catch each successive one at just the right time.
Then there are the wave makers. The giants on whose shoulders the industry stands. Dave Cutler is a wave maker, with a broad set of shoulders.
Cutler, a Microsoft Senior Technical Fellow whose body of work spans more than four decades, will be honored Saturday evening as a Computer History Museum Fellow, joining other wave makers such as Alan Kay, Vinton Cerf and Tim Berners-Lee in the museum’s Hall of Fellows.
To learn about Cutler’s storied career from computer luminaries including Bill Gates, Gordon Bell, Steve Ballmer, Ray Ozzie and Nathan Myhrvold, read the feature story.
