"After the Apple II was introduced, then came the Commodore and the Tandy TRS-80"

"Teachers started recognizing me and praising me for being smart in science and that made me want to be even smarter in science!"
"If I designed a computer with 200 chips, I tried to design it with 150. And then I would try to design it with 100. I just tried to find every trick I could in life to design things real tiny"

"I'm surprised at the extent of the bigotry. But it really plays out when companies or schools take a side and prohibit the other platform at all. We Mac users should be good even when the other side is bad. We should do what we can to accept the other platforms"
"I had a TV set and a typewriter and that made me think a computer should be laid out like a typewriter with a video screen"
