Father of the 6502: Evil Genius or just Genius?


Jeri Ellsworth and I did a three-way Skype for the annual Commodore Users Group in Las Vegas a year or two ago with Chuck Peddle, father of the venerable 6502 microprocessor that CBM and Apple based their products on.  Here is an excerpt where I ask Chuck his intentions towards humanity.

    Having recently finished reading On the Edge, I almost feel like I know you guys. And my evil (business) genius radar is pointing toward Jack. Especially in relation to Chuck.

    Also, apart from Vic-20 and my C64, I recently found a 6502 where I least expected it: in an LCD monitor! Obviously a generic variant, but it’s still cool to see how ubiquitous it is, even today.

    Did you read the first version or Brian’s book or the second?

    Don’t actually know. I borrowed it from someone and I’ve already returned it. It was a blue hardcover with the title in red, if that makes any difference. What’s different between the revisions?
