Homebrew[edit]

I added some detail to make it clearer that the Homebrew Computer Club was an informal experimenter's group ("homebrew" roughly means DIY) rather than a group of idealists dedicated to "making computers more accessible to everyone". - LuckyLouie 04:25, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

One of two African-American in the Homebrew Club?[edit]

According to this page, there were two African-American members of the club, but on Lawson's page he is mentioned as being the only one. Which is correct??? Rhodesisland (talk) 01:49, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

From the interview cited, Mr. Lawson recollects that he was the only black member. He mentions Mr. Jones as being 'in the field" but not as a club member:

BE: Were you the only black guy at those computer club meetings?

JL: Yes.

BE: Did you know any other black people in that field at the time?

JL: There was a guy who was around that time, and he's dead now. His name was Ron Jones. He ended up pushing all kinds of side things. He was around. He was not in the industry, per se.
