However, as computers became larger and programs more complicated, programmers began to learn more about how to organize and manage their projects.
Degree in electrical engineering and computer science in 1973, Bricklin went to work for Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC), a leading maker of minicomputers. There he helped design video terminals and computerized typesetting systems. His most important achievement at that time, however, was designing and partly writing one of the earliest word processing programs, called WP-8. When DEC wanted him to move to an office in New Hampshire, Bricklin decided to go back to school instead to get a degree in business administration.
He became intrigued about how the manipulation of mathematical operators and symbols might mirror logic and the operation of the human mind. His paper “On a General Method in Analysis” was rejected at first by the prestigious Royal Society, perhaps because Boole did not have a formal university degree. However, Boole’s cause was supported by some top mathematicians, and the paper was eventually not only published but awarded a gold medal. By 1849, Boole’s work had made such an impression on his colleagues that all questions about his background were dropped, and he was appointed professor of mathematics at the newly founded Queen’s College in Cork, Ireland.
