Good friend and former colleague Ed Rothberg has started a new venture. Gurobi Optimization is scheduled to release their suite of optimization products in March 2009. With Ed and Bob Bixby behind the product suite, it’s sure to be groundbreaking.
Ed is one of those rare people who is both personable and can take anyone you think is bright and seriously blow them away. You’ve probably seen some of those interviews where a Flash celebrity is asked who they look to for inspiration. Whenever I think of that question, Ed’s name pops into my head.
I’m glad to have known and worked with Ed and wish him the best of luck at Gurobi.
