Reed Sturtevant, one of the Lotus stars behind Freelance Graphics, is now heading up Microsoft’s concept development effort just blocks away from the old “LDB” headquarters building. See story here.
This is ironic for long-timers who remember how much better Freelance was than PowerPoint. Not that it mattered.
Anyway, Reed came aboard a few weeks ago and will be working on incubation projects outside Microsoft’s business units. He was most recently CEO of Eons, a social network for the over-fifty set. Before that he was at IdeaLab and Radnet.
