Larry Tesler is being remembered through a meme—as the “computer scientist who invented Copy and Paste.” Some note: “He didn't invent the fundamental idea of moving digital text from one place to another, but did create the specific method and naming convention that endured.”

The irony is that Roberta and Ken Williams started on an Apple II with Mystery House and built their company on Apple platforms, until IBM offered them a sweet deal on... the PCjr.

And I will now admit I was wrong: ten years ago today I tweeted that the personal computer was dead.

It didn’t die. Maybe it won’t. But I’ve been tablet-primary for 8 years now and would never go back to carrying a non-touch device.

When we were writing early documentation for the Apple II, we had to emphasize to people the difference between Oh and Zero, and One and lowercase Ell. Because most of our users grew up using typewriters that had no 0 or 1.

Also, exclamation point was a period, backspace, quote.

One of the most important management priorities Steve taught me is that most organizations correlate rank with talent—which incentivizes managers to hire people who aren’t as good as them. To make your organization better, you have to hire people better than you. https://t.co/b0Mkrvmshy

And one more thing: Because you poked about in ResEdit and didn’t actually boot the Alice disk, you probably didn’t discover that Cartoon-12 was the system font on that diskette. When you booted it, the menus, Finder window titles, and alerts were all rendered in it, not Chicago.
