An article about my family and computers in the Palo Alto Weekly on 12 August 1981

My mother gave me an article from the Palo Alto Weekly of 12 August 1981 that interviewed two families (one of them ours) about their use of personal computers. Among other things, the article mentions that I worked at On Line Micro Center, and the journalist, Joseph Hooper, also spoke with my boss Bill Fitzgerald. The shop was at the Palo Alto Square shopping center across the street from Palo Alto High School; I got the job there after spending an afternoon going from store to store asking if anyone had a job for me. I wrote about my job there in one of my daily texts back in June 2021. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 4 September 2022)
