Randy Wigginton Answers Questions on Quora

Randy Wigginton (via Dave Mark):

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”.

In 1977, I joined Apple Computer as their first software engineer and employee #6. While at Apple, I worked on many products, most notably Applesoft Basic, the Apple Disc Drive, and THE Spreadsheet. Also I wrote MacWrite, the first WYSIWYG word processor, for the launch of the Macintosh in 1984.
