The former technical director of Microsoft Ray Ozzie has joined the Hewlett Packard board. Incidentally, together with the former CEO of cable operator Liberty Media and the chairman of McDonalds.

Ozzie is best known as the inventor of Lotus Notes, groupware software that was particularly popular in the nineties. Via Groove Networks, Ozzie joined Microsoft in 2005.

Ozzie left Microsoft in 2010 and only showed up again last year with his start-up Cocomo, which to this day is not clear what it does. The website only shows a tablet.

The appointment of Ozzie and two other masterpieces from American industry is remarkable and undoubtedly has the intention to give the company a new impetus. The company has been under the direction of former eBay top woman Meg Whitman for some time, but has a hard time. HP is scrapping 29, 000 jobs to save $ 3.5 billion a year.
