This year will mark the 50th Anniversary of PICK / MultiValue.
According to Wikipedia, in 1965, Dick Pick and Don Nelson originally implemented PICK as the "Generalized Information Retrieval Language System" (GIRLS) on an IBM System/360 at TRW for use by the U.S. Army to control the inventory of Cheyenne helicopter parts. PICK was subsequently commercially released in 1973 by Microdata Corporation (and its British distributor CMC) as the Reality Operating System now supplied by Northgate Information Solutions.
MultiValue is now the collective term for the Pick derivative technology.
Mark Pick, son of Dick Pick and CEO of PickCloud Inc is planning on a special newsletter in April 2015 dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of this technology. There will be a result of a survey and he is calling for any memories or quotes that could be good to be included. Please contact Mark Pick prior to April 6, 2015
