Mike Lynch and Autonomy – an exclusive interview… from 2002!

Rooting around in the back of the old E&T woodshed recently, we unearthed an exclusive interview with Mike Lynch of Autonomy that our previous title, IEE Review, conducted with the tech man of the moment back in 2002.

Lynch was already filthy rich then, so a number of comments from that time leap out afresh in light of his latest contretemps with HP and its accusation that Lynch grossly overstated the value of his company, Autonomy, before selling it to them, HP.

The fact that HP sacked Lynch in May of this year does rather suggest that the US parent had grown weary of its Irish child, but we’re pretty sure this rather seamy financial affair will drag on in court for some months to come, if not years.

In the meantime, enjoy this interview with Mike Lynch from a time when the Autonomy craic was still good.
