Adam Osborne invented the first portable computer, called the Osborne 1, back in 1981. The guy was English, drove an old vintage car, and I met him at an outdoor party in Oakland, CA.

It was an oyster feast, fresh seafood cooked over three grills, at a house up in the hills. There were about a hundred people there and we stuffed ourselves with barbecued oysters.

At one point we ran out of ice, and Adam and I drove to town to get some, in his vintage auto, and we talked computer shit the whole trip.

I keep saying what an amazing life I've lived, and this was just one more chapter...
