Bruce Scott – About Oracle & Larry Ellison

December 5th, 2006 by Rajender Singh · No Comments

One of good quotes about Larry I came across recently:

“I’ve thought about this a lot. I really think that it was Larry. There were a lot of other databases (like Ingres) out there that we beat. It was really Larry’s charisma, vision, and his determination to make this thing work no matter what. It’s just the way Larry thinks. I can give you an example I tell people that exemplifies his thought process: We had space allocated to us and we needed to get our terminals strung to the computer room next door. We didn’t have anywhere to really string the wiring. Larry picks up hammer, crashes a hole in the middle of the wall and says there you go. It’s just the way he thinks, make a hole, make it happen somehow. It was Larry, the right thing and the right time.” - Bruce Scott (Interview with Rich Niemiec, 2001)
