The Sphere-1 micro, the first personal computer, was created and built
here in Utah. The creator, Mike Wise, died from complications of
diabetes in December of 2004. However, one of his long-time business
associates Arnold Grundvig of A-Systems is still around.
I talked with Arnold on the phone and he says that Mike regaled him
with many stories over the years about the Sphere and so-on. I was
interested in interviewing Mike for a short peice about that early
piece of Utah computing history. Arnold has agreed to be interviewed
for such a purpose instead.
So if any of you have questions about the Sphere or that period of
microcomputing history, please email them to me off-list and I will
collect them together with my own questions, conduct an interview and
post the transcript.
If any of you know any "old timers" that are getting on in years, it
might be a good idea to conduct a recorded interview (don't rely on
notes! record it!) to capture some of the "oral history" that will be
lost when they pass on.
