First meeting of the Homebrew Club

3rd March 1975
First meeting of the Homebrew Club

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 Bill Gates (Microsoft) and Steve Jobbs (Apple) 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".

A great site jotting down the memories of a "Home Brew Club" member can be found at http://www.bambi.net/bob/homebrew.html
