Donald Brown (programmer)
Donald M. Brown is a computer programmer and the creator of Eamon, a long-running non-commercial RPG computer game series for the Apple II computer that was released in 1980 and which featured a system to allow authors to create their own adventure games. He currently works for Prairie Group, a software development company in West Des Moines, Iowa.
Brown was a founding partner of CE Software and created at least two games for the company: SwordThrust, an expanded commercial version of Eamon, and Wall Street, a financial strategy game. Brown was later instrumental in the development of CE Software's QuicKeys macro recorder software and the QuickMail email client for the Apple Macintosh. In addition, Donald Brown produced the Executive Decision Maker desk accessory and the Desk Accessory Mover software utility; the latter was one of the first (if not the first) utilities that allowed users to install and move desk accessories on the Apple Macintosh platform.
