Lorenzo Completes Seven Summits

Long-term friend of KMi, Lorenzo Gariano, has finally completed a 12-year quest to complete the "Seven Summits" challenge – that is to climb the highest mountain on each continent – with a successful first-attempt climb of Vinson Massif on Antarctica. He becomes only the third Italian in history to have completed the Seven Summits, after Reinhold Messner and Giuseppe Pompili.

KMi have hosted audio and photo blogs for Lorenzo since he did a training climb of the Matterhorn in August 2002, taking with him the very first camera/phone that Nokia made commercially available. It was also our first use of Macromedia’s Flash Communication Server, which went on to become the backbone of The Flashmeeting Project.
