Summary
  • Desktop presentations software pioneer Rob Campbell sold his Forethought Inc firm to Microsoft Corp in response to a lucrative offer as well as the worry that the small firm's investment of time and resources may prove too sluggish to outdistance competitors on its own. Campbell will be quickly guiding Microsoft to comprehend the type of 'missionary marketing' required in the fledgling field of presentation systems. Lotus and Ashton-Tate may become interested in the field which is sure to provide competitors to Forethought's Powerpoint over the next year. Powerpoint will evolve toward greater integration, enhanced capabilities, and support for the Macintosh II and the new color standard; Microsoft products and a spell will checker be added. Campbell criticizes the software industry's failure to market their products to end users and discusses his plans and the enjoyment he has found in the industry.
