Our Story

Chapter One

Our story starts with a computer crash more than a decade ago.  Laurie was consulting as a part-time seismic interpreter for a large oil and gas company.  She was running seismic inversions that, back then, took considerable resources and a considerable amount of time.  Unfortunately, these requirements pushed the limits of the computer equipment and network available at the time, and interruptions or disc failures were a fairly common occurrence.
