Joining Apple 40 Years Ago – A memoir by Jean-Louis Gassee

In the last issue of Call-A.P.P.L.E. Magazine, we wrote about Jean-Lois Gassee and his involvement in the cancellation of the Jonathan project by Apple Computer Inc.. Today in the Monday Note blog, there was a long memoir, written by Jean-Louis himself in which he talks about his time at Apple.

“I joined Apple 40 years ago on the day of the company’s IPO, December 12, 1980. As I signed my employment agreement in Geneva I was elated, ready, and relieved.”

This is an interesting perspective from the man himself who was there with Steve Jobs and John Scully. To read the entire article, check it out at:
