CP/M Creator Gary Kildall’s Memoirs Released As Free Download

An anonymous reader writes from IEEE Spectrum: The year before his death in 1994, Gary Kildall — inventor of the early microcomputer operating system CP/M — wrote a draft of a memoir, “Computer Connections: People, Places, and Events in the Evolution of the Personal Computer Industry.” He distributed copies to family and friends, but died before realizing his plans to release it as a book. This week, the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, with the permission of Kildall’s children, released the first section and it is available for a free download. The rest of it, which they say did not reflect his true self, will not be made public.
