Google co-founder following Simonyi’s path to space

Google’s co-founder and president, Sergey Brin, paid $5 million to secure a spot on a future orbital spaceflight, Space Adventures announced this morning.

It’s the same outfit that flew former Microsoft executive Charles Simonyi to space in April 2007.

Simonyi and Brin are likely to get together at some point to discuss their trips. I wonder if that will lead to Simonyi — “the father of Word” — sharing tips on building productivity applications, and Brin trying out Simonyi’s new Intentional Software programming tools.
