Linked-list, stage 3

See stage-1 for the rules.

4 variables here (H, I, J, K). Get all 4 right to get 1 point.

H and E were coworkers at legendary organization I. In fact H asked E to apply directly to the head of F, which was how E got his job there in the first place! H was hailed as an internet visionary due to his earlier achievements, his opinions of late (e.g. anti-Open Source, anti-Wireless Networks) have been radically wrong and he has had to eat his words in public on one occasion.

K was the first commercial success of J, the company that created G. J drew heavily on the work done at I to create K. A (probably false) legend has it that I was allowed to make a pre-IPO purchase of stock in J in exchange for some technical knowledge-transfer. I tried (and failed) to sue J later! F also sued J about similar matters, and was actually successful, a lawsuit that has had ramifications until the present day.
