How Pleiades came to Life ?

This text is an email I sent to some colleagues at Standard Bank on August 2009 about the birth of Pleiades (which had happened one year before, in 2008, the same year I started coding in JavaScript), I was basically answering an answer from a grad student. The original text had the code samples pasted in the text itself, I have just replaced them by screenshots, for added sexiness. This email was, ironically, sent two days before I resigned from the company (at the time I wrote it I didn't know yet that I would). I don't know if Pleiades is still used over there, even though I think it must because all the client side logic of Hypercube was based on this runtime.
