I co-founded Momenta in 1989, where we created the leading touch sensitive tablet and pen product: the Momenta Computer, preceding the iPad by 18 years. It was on the cover of over 20 magazines and hailed as the future of computing. My heady success clouded my decisions. Poor quality assurance in the product rollout and inflated sales projections lead to me being fired by the board of directors on April 1, 1992.
