Luck favors the prepared, as well as those who keep their eyes and ears open for “opportunities”. The truth be told I consider myself quite fortunate to have made time for Steve Papa’s appearance at Princeton University yesterday afternoon. Aside from being a graduate of Princeton, Papa was also one of the founders of Endeca Technologies. In last 2011, Endeca was acquired by Oracle for around $1.1 billion.
