ABSTRACT
The article commends CheckFree Corp. founder and chairman Pete Knight for the role he and his company has played in the electronic payment revolution in banking. That revolution has been 25 years in the making, starting from a basement in the home of Knight's grandmother, where he hatched the idea. In the face of rivals such as TransPoint and skepticism among early on among bankers, CheckFree stayed its course, and its persistence paid off with the rise of what was once thought improbable, a market where money moves electronically.
