"[Steve] Woz[niak] has been very public about his history with
H[ewlett-]P[ackard] and was diligent in offering the Apple 1 prototype
... to HP, since they had right of first refusal, [as] stipulated in
his contract. They dismissed it outright, as a hobby project. And the
rest is history."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
–Mark Twain

Once we recognize that we do not err out of laziness, stupidity,
or evil intent, we can uncumber ourselves of the impossible burden of
trying to be permanently right. We can take seriously the proposition
that we could be in error, without necessarily deeming ourselves
idiotic or unworthy.
