The FCW time machine

Mark Amtower, who writes the usually entertaining B2G Marketing Report each week, has a tasty item this week.

My family has been out of town this past week, so I took the opportunity to clean my office. Among the remnants, the top 10 IT contractors from 1991 were (in order) AT&T, Unisys, IBM, CSC EDS, Hughes, Raytheon, Honeywell, Boeing Grumman, Rockwell, Ford Aerospace, SAIC, CDC and DEC (front page of Federal Computer Week, 5/13 91). None had over $1 billion in sales.

I can't even provide you with a link because I don't think we have stuff posted from 1991... but I'll find out. If we do, I'll provide you with the link.

Ah, the time machine!
