You can bet that TJ, GW and gang would have loved having Microsoft Word when crafting the Declaration of Independence. Luckily you have it to capture your revolutionary ideas! See what it would’ve been like if Word was around in 1776.
Have a great weekend. Get out and hear some music.
Just an itinerant saxophonist trying to find life between the changes. I have retired from the Corps of Engineers and Microsoft. I am an admin on the Woodwind Forum, run the Seattle Solid GOLD Big Band (formerly the Microsoft Jumpin' Jive Orchestra) a GOLD sax quartet, and enjoy time with family and friends.
I wonder if it would have come out as well if it had been primarily committee work rather than primarily Jefferson’s work?
@Paul, you might be interested in Garry Wills’s book “Inventing America” [http://amzn.to/i1DXpi], which in effect is a line-by-line analysis of the Declaration, including antecedents, motivations, drafts, etc. Altho Jefferson was the primary author, there was plenty of input from others.
