Xerox May Sell PARC

from the wow dept

The NYTimes is reporting that Xerox is talking with some venture capitalists about selling its Palo Alto Research Center better known (of course) as Xerox PARC. Considering the mythology and legends associated with PARC this would be a huge surprise. Of course, with all the trouble Xerox is having now (and has always had with commercializing PARC research) it might make sense. Anyone else want to predict just how quickly VCs would destroy PARC?
