35th Anniversary of the Spreadsheet

I couldn’t let something like Spreadsheet Day go by without acknowledging it. To be specific, VisiCalc, widely noted as the first spreadsheet for the personal computer, was released by Dan Bricklen on this day in 1979.

The accountant in me is proud to say that I have worked not only in Excel, but VisiCalc, Multiplan, SuperCalc, Lotus 1-2-3, Lotus Symphony and QuattroPro.

How may different spreadsheet tools have you used?

    Well, Happy Spreadsheet day to you! I have used Lotus 1-2-3, The Open Office Version of Excel (forgot its name) and Excel itself.
