Hermann Hauser leaves Olivetti to start the Active Book Company
In 1988, Hermann Hauser left Olivetti to start the Active Book Company, investing one million pounds of his own money.
Not wanting to repeat the mistakes made by Acorn, which had kept its technology to itself, he demonstrated the Active Book to as many large companies as he could. AT&T acquired Active Book and incorporated it into EO in July 1991. Hauser became Chief Technical Officer and Chairman of EO Europe. EO folded on Friday, 29 July 1994.
