February 16, 1999

Joe Firmage, 28, multi-millionaire founder of the high-profile Internet consulting firm USweb.com, resigned in January out of fear that the company's reputation was being hurt by his public views that extraterrestials are responsible for many high-tech inventions, such as semiconductors and lasers.

According to his autobiography (posted on the Internet), Firmage was visited by an extraterrestial in his bedroom in 1997, an experience that has caused him to re-accept Jesus Christ after a childhood falling-out with the Mormon church.
