Larry Ellison was not always a billionaire yachtsman and playboy, living life in the database fast lane. He was once a geek! This photo offers proof. (Is that actually a pocket protector?)

If you’re wondering, the even geekier guy on the left is Bob Miner, one of Oracle’s founders in 1977. 

Cheers, Tim

    Hey, be nice! Those are Porsche sunglasses in his pocket. The photo reminds me of the movie Twins with DeVito and Arnold.
