Instant Messaging Planet: Pepper Computer wants to bring collaboration to the consumer "The Lexington, Mass.-based firm is posed to launch its flagship collaborative application. But there's also reason for forward-looking enterprises to take note of the product.
Pepper Computer's founders include Chief Executive Len Kawell and President Mary Ellen Heinen, who come to the realm of collaboration and document management with impressive pedigrees. Kawell, one of the early minds behind Lotus Notes, worked with Ray Ozzie on PLATO Group Notes at CERL and later joined him at Iris Associates, which developed Notes and was ultimately purchased by Lotus. Later, he and Heinen co-founded e-book player Glassbook, which was acquired by Adobe."
