When I finally got my first computer at age 14, I did what any normal, well-adjusted teenager would do: I took it apart, piece by piece, and examined the circuits. A few years later, I got unbelievably lucky: the 1982 National Computer Conference relocated to my hometown of Houston. … What excited me most were the words “personal computer.” You have to understand in 1982, we weren’t so far from a time when, if a university had a computer, it was so big they had to build a special building around it. And it took a team of people to operate it. And it had about as much computing power as a vending machine.
