    Would you have invested?

    How good are you at spotting a good thing?

    Would you have invested in this lot in 1978?

    If only...

    I recognize Bill Gates & paul Allen

    Could be that Steve Jobs is in there too.

    I think Steve Jobs was still attending the legendary Homebrew Computer Club around that time. They were no doubt an equally motley looking crew.
