ESRI's Jack Dangermond Profiled
"Jack Dangermond [is] co-founder and president of ESRI, one of the country's largest software companies, a man whose computer tools are used by more than a million people each day around the world.... His anonymity is no accident. Ask Dangermond about the future of geographic information systems, or GIS, and his enthusiasm knows no bounds. Asked about his company, he gushes about his employees. Ask him about himself, and the conversation comes to a polite but rapid end. He declined to be interviewed in-depth for this story... While ESRI is the city's largest private employer, Dangermond is perhaps its most private citizen... Dangermond can afford a fleet of Jaguars, 'but that's not Jack,' his nephew said. Instead, he tools around town in a Ford Taurus station wagon and often stops by the family nursery to load plants into the back."
