From Perez to Clarke: Kodak's moment

Tony Brown: Nice article Mr JM-P, Very enjoyable reading. When I was last in Rochester in the US (ironically to visit Xerox), I took time out to visit the Kodak museum and the lovingly restored home of George Eastman. The whole town was a homage to Kodak and its founding father. It was, after all, the birthplace of the camera film industry and some iconic analogue camera technology. That was back on 2004 / 05. I wonder if the same museum is now a mausoleum to the Kodak that once was? It just proves that no company can rest of its laurels. Noticeably Xerox, which itself was on its knees in the early 2000s, is now a much stronger and more vibrant company after going through a fairly major and structural (digital) transformation. Move over Kodak. Rochester now belongs to the Big Red X.

Sophie Matthews-Paul: The way he treated you was appallingly unprofessional, whether it was because he thought you looked intimidating or simply just not worth considering as a serious member of the press. You behaved impeccably; Perez didn't. I'm afraid I also thought the single yellow slide in his presentation was hilarious.
