|How The $13B Man Physically Attempted To Swim Across The Atlantic Ocean! by Thatdave(m): 10:52am On Apr 01, 2012|
Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner (born August 29, 1967 in Reykjavík, Iceland) is the founder and former CEO of Opera Software. He and Geir Ivarsøy were part of a research group at the Norwegian state phone company (now known as Telenor) where they developed browsing software called MultiTorg Opera. The project was abandoned by Telenor, but Geir and Jon obtained the rights to the software, formed a company of their own, and continued working on it. Now known simply as Opera, the Internet browser has become very popular despite the competition. Opera Software has grown to over 500 employees since it first moved to its present offices in Oslo.
On Thursday, April 21, 2005, he proclaimed that if the download numbers of the browser's new version Opera 8 reached 1 million within four days, he would swim across the Atlantic Ocean from Norway to the United States . . . the rest >> http://dwitch.com/dwitches/view/180
