You are internal to DTM; you should know.
This reminds me that on late '92 (or early '93) Mr. Barry Ben Ezra
changed position in Cubital Ltd. from "VP Research and Development"
to "VP Business Development and Special Programs".
In the time perspective one can only speculate whether R&D (in this
firm) was thereafter carried out with greater effectiveness or not.
