I borrowed the handbook “The Spreadsheet at 25: The Evolution of the Invention that Changed the World” this morning because of its … small size. Turns out to be a pretty cool one about Excel. There are a few pages about Excel’s history, which I skimmed over cause ‘too stupid to appreciate its beauty and complexity’.
I just have a vague idea that I need to be grateful to … a series of people … dated back around 1850 when someone used rows and columns to describe an accouting system … then hallo to Lotus, Quattro Pro … er, lots of development till I have this Excel 2007 I love now.
The book’s references are here: http://www.mrexcel.com/coolapps/
I also just installed ASAP Utilities (http://www.asap-utilities.com/). Let’s see if I learn how to make use of it.
