<abstract><p>Paul Lutus describes his early Apple II software development days, conducted
from the far end of a 1200-foot power cord, in a tiny Oregon cabin. Paul
describes how he wrote a best-seller (Apple Writer) in assembly language,
while dealing with power outages, lightning storms and the occasional
curious bear.
</p><p>Paul also describes his subsequent four-year solo around-the-world sail in a
31-foot boat. And be ready with your inquiries -- Paul will answer your
questions.
</p><p>Paul Lutus has a wide background in science and technology. He designed spacecraft
components for the NASA Space Shuttle and created a mathematical model of the solar
system used during the Viking Mars lander program. Then, at the beginning of the
personal computer revolution, Lutus switched career paths and took up computer
science. His best-known program is "Apple Writer," an internationally successful
word processing program for the early Apple computers.
