SUNDAY May 1, 1977

Since the last book ended several things have happened. I wrote the last entry in there about February 13. I had just got back from L.A. Conceptually I had finished all of the development on EDITX's marketing and had finished all of the major work for MicroSoft except year end matters. I did those things through till Fri March 11 and also began the marketing of EDITX to APS. It was not all that intriguing but showed me that I need more patience in such matters. I also started to use APS to find new outlets for my sales. Sent letter to El Paso.

For MicroSoft, I also finished setting up the deal with Commodore, and then I set off to California for vacation. I wanted to get a job there very badly. I also wanted to have a good time with an all-american blond. I met one name Jim Schultz. We

went to the beach and Disneyland and bars in Long Beach, Newport Beach, etc. Wonderful time. He was going to repay the $50 he borrowed but still has not. I went to see Cal. Software Products & Pete Washington on Friday & was unimpressed, Then interest starts.

First I came back to MicroSoft Fri Mar? 18, No job in hand. But that is not bad I guess. The first week was very boring. Oriented Elaine, bought furniture, etc. No Editx stuff I was too depressed but I made my appointment Tuesday to see & give EDX demo the next Thursday, March 31. That first weekend I was back, Chip was gone and I just wanted to think about what I wanted to do. Spent Thurs & Fri night & Sat all day on it. Church & letters on Sunday. Some crazy idea of working with Xerox, as a sociological-impact researcher

I wrote letters of interest the next week, along with letters to satisfy any speeding tickets. I wrote to Xerox PARC and to Alan Kay there. But it didn't ever pan out. I also gave my demo at APS and that was favorable and I called El Paso after sending them a letter the previous Thursday. This was unfavorable. But I tried to work out something. May come down & demo at Easter time. The next weekend.

That weekend of the second week I goofed around w/ Chip around Madrid and in Santa Fe that night. Got up late both days. Sunday, did brunch at Albuquerque Inn. Then I did my own crazy stuff Sunday aft and we went to N M Film Show Sun night.

The next week was a fast one at Micro Soft because of the long three day weekend at Easter. No time for any Editx stuff. Went to El Paso
