First meeting of the Homebrew Club
3rd March 1975
Posted on a bulletin board in the Palo Alto High School terminal room, (in the Palo Alto High School math-science office) was a notice that a computer group meeting would be held at the home of Gordon French, in his garage. This was to be the first meeting of the famous "homebrew club".
As the club grew people like Steve Wozniak, Lee Felsenstein, John Draper and Steve Jobs attended and spawned the now famous computer corporations. This has been well documented in the book "Accidental Empires" by Robert X Cringely, and on the television series shown in 1996 called the "Triumph of the Nerds".
