Robert Bleidt - Legacy Websites

Below is a copy of a old (~2004) page that I had on the previous version of my website. There are also more recent links to conference presentations, papers, etc. on the Resume / CV page. Back then, I said:

This is sort of a "scrapbook" of some papers and projects I have put together when I have time. Regrettably, most of the strategy work I've done is still too sensitive for public viewing. The images of documents are hyperlinks - just click on the image to see the document.

Trade Shows

Philips MP4Net did many trade shows during 2000. This is Comdex 2000. (I am on the right, and not usually so much of a pitchman.)

Big Machines

Before Philips I marketed a SIMD supercomputer, primarily as a server for video-on-demand services. This smaller model has only 256 disk drives and CPUs.
