Computerworld magazine, which turns 40 years old this year, is surveying its readers to determine the most significant IT people and products of the last four decades. Among the product candidates are both the Apple II and VisiCalc, the world’s first electronic spreadsheet; and VisiCalc creator Dan Bricklin is among the choices of people who mattered. Be sure to help these contenders get the recognition they deserve by casting your vote!


The results of this survey are now in. Of the Top Ten Reader’s Choice of People Who Mattered, Dan Bricklin was #1. Featured in the print edition of Computerworld but not on their Web site is the Apple II, which was #4 in the Top Ten Products of the last forty years.
