Michael Dell’s latest acquisition

I was intrigued to read last week about Michael Dell acquiring an archive of pictures from the famous Magnum photographic cooperative – at first I wondered whether there was any synergy between Magnum and Dell’s business model, but it turns out that this is really a philanthropic move by Michael Dell’s investment company.

Michael Dell is 44,which is the sort of age where many men are tempted to spend money on something a little frivolous – if this is indeed a forty-something vanity purchase, it’s a rather wonderful one and it’s good to see that the photos are to be loaned to the University of Texas for the time being at least
