Silicon Graphics goes Jurassic!

In the ebbs and flows of Silicon Valley, we just hit another nadir - Silicon Graphics, high-flyer in the past, is history, selling its assets for a paltry $25M to Rackable systems.

Once boasting the only high-end graphics power to be able to render high-end graphics jobs like Jurassic Park, a great campus that now houses Google, and the coolest workstations like Steve Jobs' NeXT, it is indeed sad to see the banner come down on this company, like Michael Crichton wrote into the last scene of Jurassic Park (When dinosaurs ruled the earth!)

Was the T-Rex already on campus when Google moved?
