The Graphing Calculator Story

2006, mac

Anyone who has heard of the original story of the Mac almost certainly knows about The Graphing Calculator Story. It's a story that is about solving a problem and succeeding despite, rather than because of, management. It's all about how the Graphing Calculator made it into the original Mac OS, despite the developer working on it not being employed by Apple.

Google recently invited Ron Avitzur to give a talk about the history of the project; if you're read the story, you might be interested to see and hear Ron reminisce about the project.
