Apple’s first software engineer, Randy Wigginton, answers questions on Apple

This is a long-running thread (see the date of each question) on early days at Apple and Woz. Here’s how it opens:

My obsession with computers began in 1973 at the age of 13. Since there were no “personal computers” for sale, I wanted to make my own. To learn how, I started attending Homebrew Computer Club meetings. Since I was unable to drive, I asked if anyone lived near me that could give me a lift to the meetings. A really nice guy came up and said he lived close and could give me a ride. I answered, “Great! What’s your name?” His answer: “Steve. But my friends call me Woz”.

A fascinating bit of Apple history.
