Subject: 2014017 - How About a Book...
...a book about the Rape of the Personal Computer and the Internet??
Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and a few others destroyed the Personal Computer and gave us a Spy Machine.
The Internet was designed for two-way communication and Journalism, the Media and a few others gave us another distribution system.
Yesterday, I read your post, "I was a Digital Best Seller!" -- and I trust that you realize that your difficulties described therein are a byproduct of the above situation -- and I quote:
Meanwhile, I'm back to planning my next book. I don't yet know on what subject. But I do know its form: in hard copy, between covers, a book I can put on the shelf and look at forever, even if it doesn't sell.
I would like to help, and I believe that we could produce a book that might become more famous than Ralph Nader's "Unsafe at Any Speed". It could even become the platform for the First Female President of the United States.
I am not a writer -- I am an 85 year young Engineer turned Programmer. I started programming on an HP minicomputer in the late 70's -- bought a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model II in December 1980 -- started SandS Software in September 1981 -- switched to the IBM Personal Computer when introduced.
I, with some help from my son, have produced three versions of desktop software for the IBM/Microsoft operating system, two of which have been sold to other companies. Obviously, I want to sell Version Three.
