Recollections: The Rise and Fall of WordStar
October-December 2006 (vol. 28 no. 4)
pp. 64-72
This memoir focuses chiefly on the story of WordStar, the pioneering word processing software for personal computers that was ahead of its time. A series of unfortunate circumstances--personal illness, management ineptitude, clash of egos, changing business conditions--converged to bring low a once-promising and shining venture.
