dispute over facts[edit]

I was assigned a report for my college class on Cisco. On their "about" page tells the story of how Cisco was invented by the Husband and wife wanting to communicate but due to technology, they were unable to.

"The concept of solutions being driven to address specific customer challenges has been with Cisco since its inception. Husband and wife Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner, both working for Stanford University, wanted to email each other from their respective offices located in different buildings but were unable to due to technological shortcomings. A technology had to be invented to deal with disparate local area protocols; and as a result of solving their challenge - the multi-protocol router was born."

The article on Wikipedia suggests that the company website is wrong. How could that be? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.16.92.222 (talk) 15:41, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Content removed?[edit]

Earlier today (12:47, 22 July 2013)‎ Harrison58 removed the following content from the article with an edit summary that said "removed one incorrect line in article":

It has also been noted that the original router was designed and created by a group of people at Stanford, both students and faculty, rather than Lerner and Bosack alone.[1]

The Mercury News story includes the following statement and several more that support the content that was removed:

But the Cisco legend is incomplete. It omits many people who helped develop the multiprotocol router, a device critical to the early Internet. It omits a battle with Stanford that almost killed Cisco at birth over charges that the founders used technology that belonged to Stanford to start their business.
Perhaps most important, legends like Cisco's obscure the true collective nature of the innovation that built Silicon Valley long before the hype and froth of the Internet bubble.

So, I will restore the original statement. If the statement is in fact incorrect, I urge that someone explain more about what is wrong and how they know it is wrong before deleting what appears to be properly sourced content. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 17:28, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

sources[edit]

Some specifically about Sandy Lerner, some focussing on Chawton House but mentioning her. Some of these have been used in the article, but not in depth, i.e. these sources contain more info worth writing in to the biography.
