Assignment: Create an authoritative encyclopedia page for the assigned person. Please paste all of your sources at the bottom of the document you submit. If there are sections or H2s that are not relevant (like net worth where the information may not exist) skip them. When in doubt, check with the managing editor.
Any time another company, individual, or invention is discussed, link to that page on History-computer, if a page exists. For example: The first Macintosh was introduced on January 24, 1984, by Steve Jobs and it was the first commercially successful personal computer to feature two known, but still unpopular features—the mouse and the graphical user interface, rather than the command-line interface of its predecessors.
If you believe there is a page we are missing that could be done better please send a note to the managing editor and we will add to the backlog if the opportunity is large enough.
The format of the page should follow the sections listed below. For the facts box, please fill in all fields, even if it’s N/A. will be a simple table at the top of the article. Each section that follows will be an H2, or and H3. It will be labeled below. If a section is not appropriate for that individual or no information exists please skip.
