At the beginning of 1980, three people left Hewlett-Packard to form Software Publishing Corporation (SPC). The three were Fred Gibbons, president; Janelle Bedke, chief operating officer; and me—John Page—vice president of engineering. This is the story of how the events that led up to SPC's founding looked through my eyes: "The Engineer's Tale" (with a nod to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales), if you will.
