From Cupertino Today:

Cupertino school board to mull potential $5M in cuts due to declining enrollment, costs

POSTED BY: STAFF WRITER JANUARY 9, 2018

Budget cuts of up to $5 million next school year due to declining enrollment and increased costs are set to be discussed at the Cupertino Union School Board meeting this evening at 6 p.m.

In the next five years, enrollment at the Cupertino Unified School District is expected to fall by more than 1,200 students, according to enrollment projection consultants hired by the School Board. …

By 2022, fewer than 16,800 students are expected to attend the school district’s schools compared with the current figure of 18,001.

Cupertino is dying out, what with only having one $5 billion new Apple headquarters opening in it lately.

Solution: more immigrants!

Oh, wait, they already have a lot. From Wikipedia:

The racial makeup of Cupertino was 18,270 (31.3%) White, 344 (0.6%) Black American, 117 (0.2%) American Indian, 36,895 (63.3%) Asian (28.1% Chinese, 22.6% Indian, 4.6% Korean, 3.3% Japanese, 1.3% Vietnamese), 54 (0.1%) Pacific Islander, 670 (1.1%) from other races, and 1,952 (3.3%) from two or more races. Hispanic of any race were 2,113 persons (3.6%); 2.4% of Cupertino’s population is of Mexican ancestry.

White students are down to 15.3% of the public schools, with the vast majority of students being Asian.

I couldn’t find how Cupertino voted by itself in 2016, but Trump got only 21% of the vote Santa Clara County. I’m sure the average Cupertino voter thought Trump’s comments on immigration policy are deplorable.

  1. Is it safe to assume declining school enrollment is caused by Apple workers who are young enough to have kids are on the lower end of Apple’s payscale and can’t afford to live in Cupertino?

  2. Steve,

    The average house in Cupertino is over $2M. There are very few apartments.

    It is a case of an entire city that new whites cannot afford to move into. The whites that still live there got there before 1990 or so. They are sitting on immense home equity gains.

    That is why the schools are just 15% white (and almost zero NAMs).

    Your article doesn’t make any new points about politics, though. Neighboring cities like Saratoga and Sunnyvale are also being filled with Asians.

  3. Speaking of deplorable immigration comments, this is probably fake news in the Washington Post, but I want to believe:

    President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to two people briefed on the meeting.

    “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met Wednesday.

    The comments left lawmakers taken aback, according to people familiar with their reactions. Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent and prioritizing countries already in the system, a White House official said.

    A White House spokesman defended Trump’s position on immigration without directly addressing Trump’s remarks.

    “Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement issued after The Washington Post first reported Trump’s remarks. “. . .Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation.”

  4. the vast majority of students being Asian.

    To be more specific, Indian and Chinese.

    36,895 (63.3%) Asian (28.1% Chinese, 22.6% Indian, 4.6% Korean, 3.3% Japanese, 1.3% Vietnamese)

    Also, I assume many, perhaps a large majority, of these are foreign-born, but the cited stats do not indicate birth status.

    Of course.

    Yes. Probably 85% of them. Second-gen Asians live in white areas, and are often married to whites.

    It is interesting to see a city in America that whites have been priced out of.

    However, maybe there are more Filipinos than Chinese, given the higher Filipino incomes :

    Filipinos often don’t call themselves such. Some even call themselves ‘Hispanic’ (which they sort of are).

    >In theory, we should find 5% false positives (for a significance threshold of 5%), but instead we found that the most common software packages for fMRI analysis (SPM, FSL, AFNI) can result in false-positive rates of up to 70%. These results question the validity of a number of fMRI studies and may have a large impact on the interpretation of weakly significant neuroimaging results.

  10. Cupertino is a bit of an outlier. Asians flock there because the schools have programs targeted at them. Nearby Los Gatos, where is close to where I live, is 82% white.

  12. Somewhat OT:

    Earlier I went to the mall to use a Christmas gift card.

    Walking by the Microsoft store, I spotted a big sign inviting shoppers to “Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.” over the holiday weekend. The sign sported one of those obnoxious stylized “hands of many colors reaching out to one another in a big beautiful circle of love” logos so beloved by our fearless diversity enforcers.

    Half of the store’s employees were standing near the entrance, wearing virtual-reality headsets and waving their arms around in mock combat.

    I’m no drooling Apple fanboy, but even I am turned off by the degree to which the Microsoft store is a slavish imitation of its Apple counterpart. The Microsoft hardware is designed to look almost identical to the Apple hardware. The whole enterprise reeks of gamma desperation: “See how kewl and trendy we are?”

    Bill Gates and Paul Allen stole the source code for their Altair BASIC from their employer. King plagiarized large portions of his dissertation. So it’s only fitting that Microsoft is going all out to honor the unofficial patron saint of blackhood.

    SJWs gonna SJW.

    Raiders of the Lost Altair BASIC Source Code
    They came, they saw ... they disassembled (PG)
    By Andrew Orlowski 13 May 2001 at 01:21
    SHARE ▼

    As promised, here's the story of what happened to the source code for the Gates-Allen-Davidoff 4K BASIC interpreter for the MITS Altair.

    The three authored the software that provided one of the foundations for the PC business, and we interviewed Davidoff, who worked for 'Micro-Soft' as it then was, here yesterday.

    Let's pick up the story in 1987, twelve years after the historic 4K BASIC had been completed. With the Altair long gone, French journalist Andre Warusfel asked Gates if he could have access to the source code. Gates agreed, but the source listings never arrived. Another French journalist, former editor of the now-defunct programming journal EXE and Pataphysics historian David Mery took up the pursuit over the next decade.

    "It is this very program which started the micro-computing commercial software industry," notes Mery in his account of the saga, Stalking Bill Gates. "The PC software industry has a short history and we should have access to the milestones of its evolution."

    On numerous occasions Gates promised Mery that he'd release the source, without actually doing so. But with the Millenium Bug safely negotiated, things begin to look up. Your humble correspondent has a tiny walk-on part at this stage, tagging a question onto an interview Bill Gates did with a UK trade weekly. This time, Bill sounded much more positive:-

    "We were digging around for this recently and found it. We will get the source code up on the Web - anybody who specifically wants a copy can just ask," he pledged.

    Well, although the source code isn't on the web, and certainly isn't freely distributable, it is now public. Sorta.
    The source of the sauce

    The source code to the 4K Altair BASIC resides in the Pusey library at Harvard, although its arrival there seems to have been through chance. An English programmer Ian Griffiths has seen it, taken notes, and has provided some valuable detective work in his account here. It's a great read.

    Far from being donated by Microsoft, the source listing in the Pusey library was actually discovered by accident, behind a filing cabinet, by Gates' old tutor Harry Lewis. Lewis is a Dean at the college and Professor in the computer science department. The Pusey listing one of several copies. But, concludes Griffiths, "The implication ... is that Bill's total input to the preservation project was his act of absent-mindedly dropping a listing somewhere in Harvard in 1975, and then granting permission for it to be copied and archived in 1999."

    Griffiths was not allowed to make copies himself - which we guess is entirely consistent with Microsoft's 'Look, Don't Touch' policy to its source code. But he did make extensive notes.

    And one we were particularly delighted to see. The source contains the following comment:-

    00560 PAUL ALLEN WROTE THE NON-RUNTIME STUFF.
    00580 BILL GATES WROTE THE RUNTIME STUFF.
    00600 MONTE DAVIDOFF WROTE THE MATH PACKAGE

    even though Davidoff isn't credited on the archive. Monte doesn't own any football teams, and may not be a billionaire (he may be, we were just too shy to ask), but it's nice that his place in history should now be confirmed.
    Diss-assembly

    But soft! The tale gets even more interesting. Griffiths' friend Reuben Harris, a programmer based in London, has been disassembling the earliest Altair BASIC he could find. It's the same 4K interpreter written by Gates, Allen and Davidoff, and the latter was evidently tickled by the project when we spoke to him on Thursday evening.

    Reuben tells us the results should be available in the next week or so. Stay tuned... ®

  13. Asians are colonizing the United States. This colonization will be stopped and the Asians will be encouraged to repatriate themselves.

    Asians are now a threatening component of the anti-White Democrat Party. The Democrat Party is made up of Blacks, Asians, Jews, Mestizos, White government workers and other White elements.

    Asians must not be allowed to colonize the West and East Coasts of the United States.

    The Republican Party goes explicitly White Identity Politics or it goes dodo.

    California must be fought for and won back by White Core Americans.

  14. a case of an entire city that new whites cannot afford to move into. The whites that still live there got there before 1990 or so

    True, but it requires an explanation. Why are Asians able to move to places like Cupertino and whites are not? The market presumably works the same for everyone.

    What is missing is what neither liberals nor most conservatives are willing to discuss: Chinese and Indians are running a perfect racket by arbitraging the current US policies. Young Indians/Chinese get their education mostly for free in home countries or by ‘migrating’ to US as young kids who then go to universities in US for free because their family has no income in US. They might be quite wealthy back home, but in US the system sees them as indigents. After obtaining the free education, Indians/Chinese move to work in places like Silicon Valley with no student debts. They get to start all over again – something native white Americans don’t get to do.

    Combined with money brought from home countries (most of these migrants are from middle and upper classes), with no student debt, and companies falling all over themselves to hire them (often because an uncle or cousin is the one hiring them), their financial situation is dramatically better than of the native white population. So they buy homes.

    A perfect racket that takes advantage of the absurd US system that penalises its own young people. It would be as if young Americans would get great education at home, load up on debt, and then when ready to work would promptly decamp to London or Paris and forget about their debts. There is also the money that these migrating families take from China/India to get established in US. With not having to pay for education, that is naturally easier.

    Only modern Western liberals can be either stupid enough, or hateful of the despised white ‘deplorables’, to celebrate and encourage this scam.

    Actually, you are wrong.

    Not only do international students not receive any aid at the undergrad level (they only get aid if grad students), but the 700,000 Chinese students in the US as undergrads are paying full price, and delaying the much-needed collapse of US SJW Universities.

    http://www.scmp.com/lifestyle/families/article/2085754/how-chinese-student-boom-has-kept-us-public-universities-afloat

    The notion that they are coming here to get free college is absurd. The truth is exactly the opposite. I would prefer if they weren't keeping US Universities afloat by paying full price, and the Univ. SJWs got their just desserts via deserved unemployment.

    The rest of your comment is also wrong, because nowhere can you admit that perhaps these Asians pursue rigorous fields, and with 41% of white Americans born to single mothers, fewer and fewer American kids are likely to pursue STEM at all.

    They tend to do that. This gets misunderstood as political conservatism. It is culturally conservative, but Asians often arrive at the same big-state place as promised-conservative Hispanics by the opposite route. Your stereotypical mestizo wants a state to be big so it can give him stuff. A lot of East Asians have this self-contradictory idea, let the government do what it wants so long as it leaves me alone (after all, politics is unknowable and unaccountable, and political opinions can threaten superficial harmony). So we do have some good right-wing politically literate Asians but we ought to assume that every recent arrival not wearing a MAGA hat is somewhere on the socialist spectrum, family values or not.
    Also: homogeneous neighborhoods for them does not mean white people get to ask for such or even bring it up. White people need to sit in the corner and think about what they did.

    You're talking about F visa holders. Beckow's presumably talking about dependent children of legal immigrants, who indeed get in-state tuition, in-state admissions preferences (e.g. Texas Top 10, etc.) and even financial aid if they are poor enough - or can contrive to appear so for FAFSA purposes. (Not so common among EB-1/2 green carders who usually need to work for a living, but extremely common among EB-5s laundering ill-gotten gains out of China.)

    Dependent non-citizen children of non-immigrant visa holders (H-1B, etc.) are in an intermediate position; some states will give them in-state tuition, others won't. (IIRC, California's in the "will" category", while Michigan's one of the "won't" states.)

    and delaying the much-needed collapse of US SJW Universities.
     
    International students rarely engage with that stuff either way. They don't participate in it, but they don't stand in its way unless it's directly impacting them ("hey hey this is a library!"). And kids of immigrants are a whole 'nother story.
    , @Beckow
    You display a touching naivite. J.Dart provided some great details. I would add that most international students are able to avoid paying by coming as dependents, often even attending the last few years of high school, and then simply don't pay because they are classified as 'poor'. If you really think that 700,ooo(?) Chinese students are paying full price, well that's beyond naive. They are playing you like a fiddle. Of course, many will claim that they 'pay' (and some might), but they are not telling you the truth. They know what you want to hear. Talk to university insiders, they will tell you how it works.

    I was also mostly talking about the arbitrage of getting education in their home countries and then moving to US to work. They arrive with no debt, while the local native young people usually have large debt. Today the numbers are very significant and literally put most young Americans at a disadvantage. But if you think that Indians and Chinese are actually funding US education - if you really believe that - I can't help you. Maybe you can also buy a bridge in Mumbai, great investment...

    And what's in the Midwest? Companies and farms targeted by the government for treatment so brutal, whether over-regulation or squeezing by a heavily lobbying megacorp like ADM, you would think they were a declared enemy. The same congresscritters who ostentatiously yelled at auto execs for whatever that was about anyway have no issue with Google and Facezuck assisting foreign tyranny.

    " Can you tell why the Silicon Valley/West coast companies have highest market value and profits while the traditional Midwest companies are going bankrupt? "

    They have inordinately high market values. But profits? There's the rub for a lot of them.

    Most of the "name" companies in this current version of the economy are... let's just categorize them as "virtual."

    In the not so long run I think they are going to find occupying their market space is like holding onto a slimey rock, trying not to get swept away in a torrent.

    If I'm reading this correctly, Asians are self segregating into their own racially homogeneous private schools?

    Imagine the improvement in Black test scores if Blacks from Oakland were bussed in to benefit from sitting next to Asian classmates!

    a case of an entire city that new whites cannot afford to move into. The whites that still live there got there before 1990 or so
     
    True, but it requires an explanation. Why are Asians able to move to places like Cupertino and whites are not? The market presumably works the same for everyone.

    What is missing is what neither liberals nor most conservatives are willing to discuss: Chinese and Indians are running a perfect racket by arbitraging the current US policies. Young Indians/Chinese get their education mostly for free in home countries or by 'migrating' to US as young kids who then go to universities in US for free because their family has no income in US. They might be quite wealthy back home, but in US the system sees them as indigents. After obtaining the free education, Indians/Chinese move to work in places like Silicon Valley with no student debts. They get to start all over again - something native white Americans don't get to do.

    Combined with money brought from home countries (most of these migrants are from middle and upper classes), with no student debt, and companies falling all over themselves to hire them (often because an uncle or cousin is the one hiring them), their financial situation is dramatically better than of the native white population. So they buy homes.

    A perfect racket that takes advantage of the absurd US system that penalises its own young people. It would be as if young Americans would get great education at home, load up on debt, and then when ready to work would promptly decamp to London or Paris and forget about their debts. There is also the money that these migrating families take from China/India to get established in US. With not having to pay for education, that is naturally easier.

    Only modern Western liberals can be either stupid enough, or hateful of the despised white 'deplorables', to celebrate and encourage this scam.

    They might be quite wealthy back home, but in US the system sees them as indigents

    Bingo. Google “pre-immigration trust” for an example of how they do this legally, and a convenient list of amoral tax lawyers who help them do it.

    Actually, you are wrong.

    Not only do international students not receive any aid at the undergrad level (they only get aid if grad students), but the 700,000 Chinese students in the US as undergrads are paying full price, and delaying the much-needed collapse of US SJW Universities.

    http://www.scmp.com/lifestyle/families/article/2085754/how-chinese-student-boom-has-kept-us-public-universities-afloat

    The notion that they are coming here to get free college is absurd. The truth is exactly the opposite. I would prefer if they weren't keeping US Universities afloat by paying full price, and the Univ. SJWs got their just desserts via deserved unemployment.

    The rest of your comment is also wrong, because nowhere can you admit that perhaps these Asians pursue rigorous fields, and with 41% of white Americans born to single mothers, fewer and fewer American kids are likely to pursue STEM at all.

    You’re talking about F visa holders. Beckow’s presumably talking about dependent children of legal immigrants, who indeed get in-state tuition, in-state admissions preferences (e.g. Texas Top 10, etc.) and even financial aid if they are poor enough – or can contrive to appear so for FAFSA purposes. (Not so common among EB-1/2 green carders who usually need to work for a living, but extremely common among EB-5s laundering ill-gotten gains out of China.)

    Dependent non-citizen children of non-immigrant visa holders (H-1B, etc.) are in an intermediate position; some states will give them in-state tuition, others won’t. (IIRC, California’s in the “will” category”, while Michigan’s one of the “won’t” states.)

    and delaying the much-needed collapse of US SJW Universities.

    International students rarely engage with that stuff either way. They don’t participate in it, but they don’t stand in its way unless it’s directly impacting them (“hey hey this is a library!”). And kids of immigrants are a whole ‘nother story.

  27. Let be absolutely clear: Cupertino is an enclave of China; it is, unapologetically, de facto a beach head of the aspirant Chinese Empire, and the Chinese are laughing up their sleeves all the way to the bank. Aside from the chains, many shops’ signs are in Chinese and the schools are run by Chinese for Chinese in Chinese.

    The rest is distraction and bullshit.

    Why are we admitting people from shitholes, indeed….

    (Yes, China is a shithole. If it weren’t the Chinese would not be eager to come to America. As I always say, to the confused end of the conversation or debate with invaders: “if X is such an awesome place and your culture is so damned awesome you defiantly refuse to abandon it or assimilate, why did you leave it to come here?”)

    Or, as the great Gene Simmons more concisely puts it “Learn goddam English.”

    Immigrants enthusiastically embrace the language and culture of their adopted lands; invaders spurn it.

    You display a touching naivite. J.Dart provided some great details. I would add that most international students are able to avoid paying by coming as dependents, often even attending the last few years of high school, and then simply don’t pay because they are classified as ‘poor’. If you really think that 700,ooo(?) Chinese students are paying full price, well that’s beyond naive. They are playing you like a fiddle. Of course, many will claim that they ‘pay’ (and some might), but they are not telling you the truth. They know what you want to hear. Talk to university insiders, they will tell you how it works.

    I was also mostly talking about the arbitrage of getting education in their home countries and then moving to US to work. They arrive with no debt, while the local native young people usually have large debt. Today the numbers are very significant and literally put most young Americans at a disadvantage. But if you think that Indians and Chinese are actually funding US education – if you really believe that – I can’t help you. Maybe you can also buy a bridge in Mumbai, great investment…

    False. International students do NOT get need-based aid in US universities. That is why there are vastly more international grad students than undergrad students.

    The international undergrad students are usually very rich, paying full price.

    But don't let facts get in the way of your narrative.....

    True, but there is certainly nothing wrong with that. Nothing unethical was being done. By contrast, the American kid has a home to go to during the break, while the international student usually lives out of a suitcase, has no car, etc.

    If an American kid pays full price to go to MIT and gets a 3.0, but then another goes to the University of Toledo and gets a 4.0, and they both are in the same jobs at age 30, then the same thing was done domestically.

    But if you think that Indians and Chinese are actually funding US education – if you really believe that – I can’t help you.

    At this point, the Chinese are. I even posted an article. Your problem is that you are unable to interpret data. Data is like kryptonite to a WN.

    What is amazing is the mental acrobatics you will go through to claim you are a victim. That is why WN is a left-wing ideology of dependency.

    This is not about ethics. It is about basic economics. And the 'home to go to' is really a pathetic 'reason', I hope you didn't mean it. A young American has up to $100k in student debt, and his competitor from let's say India shows up with no debt, the American is at a disadvantage. Period. It is an arbitrage of people who get free education in their home countries (paid by their taxpayers), and then move debt-free to US to work. And the system is setup to encourage it. I pointed out that an equivalent would be a young American simply getting all the education in US universities by using debt, and then moving to work in Europe or Asia and walking away from the student debt. The fact that in US the debt is explicit, and in many foreign countries it is implicit ('you pay back by working and paying taxes'), is a distinction without a difference.

    By the way, US universities know this very well. But they also know that they are effectively funded by easy student debt (so they can raise tuition to crazy levels), and they keep quiet. Yes, US universities are paid by easy student debt - and not by '700,000 rich Chinese students' (that is so absurd, I am not sure you are fully coherent mathematically.)

    If you are serious, address the actual points: foreign 'dependents' getting a free ride and the arbitrage of getting free education and then moving to US.

    Somewhat OT:

    Earlier I went to the mall to use a Christmas gift card.

    Walking by the Microsoft store, I spotted a big sign inviting shoppers to "Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr." over the holiday weekend. The sign sported one of those obnoxious stylized "hands of many colors reaching out to one another in a big beautiful circle of love" logos so beloved by our fearless diversity enforcers.

    Half of the store's employees were standing near the entrance, wearing virtual-reality headsets and waving their arms around in mock combat.

    I'm no drooling Apple fanboy, but even I am turned off by the degree to which the Microsoft store is a slavish imitation of its Apple counterpart. The Microsoft hardware is designed to look almost identical to the Apple hardware. The whole enterprise reeks of gamma desperation: "See how kewl and trendy we are?"

    Bill Gates and Paul Allen stole the source code for their Altair BASIC from their employer. King plagiarized large portions of his dissertation. So it's only fitting that Microsoft is going all out to honor the unofficial patron saint of blackhood.

    SJWs gonna SJW.

    I doubt Gates and Allen stole it.

    Raiders of the Lost Altair BASIC Source Code
    They came, they saw … they disassembled (PG)
    By Andrew Orlowski 13 May 2001 at 01:21
    SHARE ▼

    As promised, here’s the story of what happened to the source code for the Gates-Allen-Davidoff 4K BASIC interpreter for the MITS Altair.

    The three authored the software that provided one of the foundations for the PC business, and we interviewed Davidoff, who worked for ‘Micro-Soft’ as it then was, here yesterday.

    Let’s pick up the story in 1987, twelve years after the historic 4K BASIC had been completed. With the Altair long gone, French journalist Andre Warusfel asked Gates if he could have access to the source code. Gates agreed, but the source listings never arrived. Another French journalist, former editor of the now-defunct programming journal EXE and Pataphysics historian David Mery took up the pursuit over the next decade.

    “It is this very program which started the micro-computing commercial software industry,” notes Mery in his account of the saga, Stalking Bill Gates. “The PC software industry has a short history and we should have access to the milestones of its evolution.”

    On numerous occasions Gates promised Mery that he’d release the source, without actually doing so. But with the Millenium Bug safely negotiated, things begin to look up. Your humble correspondent has a tiny walk-on part at this stage, tagging a question onto an interview Bill Gates did with a UK trade weekly. This time, Bill sounded much more positive:-

    “We were digging around for this recently and found it. We will get the source code up on the Web – anybody who specifically wants a copy can just ask,” he pledged.

    Well, although the source code isn’t on the web, and certainly isn’t freely distributable, it is now public. Sorta.
    The source of the sauce

    The source code to the 4K Altair BASIC resides in the Pusey library at Harvard, although its arrival there seems to have been through chance. An English programmer Ian Griffiths has seen it, taken notes, and has provided some valuable detective work in his account here. It’s a great read.

    Far from being donated by Microsoft, the source listing in the Pusey library was actually discovered by accident, behind a filing cabinet, by Gates’ old tutor Harry Lewis. Lewis is a Dean at the college and Professor in the computer science department. The Pusey listing one of several copies. But, concludes Griffiths, “The implication … is that Bill’s total input to the preservation project was his act of absent-mindedly dropping a listing somewhere in Harvard in 1975, and then granting permission for it to be copied and archived in 1999.”

    Griffiths was not allowed to make copies himself – which we guess is entirely consistent with Microsoft’s ‘Look, Don’t Touch’ policy to its source code. But he did make extensive notes.

    And one we were particularly delighted to see. The source contains the following comment:-

    00560 PAUL ALLEN WROTE THE NON-RUNTIME STUFF.
    00580 BILL GATES WROTE THE RUNTIME STUFF.
    00600 MONTE DAVIDOFF WROTE THE MATH PACKAGE

    even though Davidoff isn’t credited on the archive. Monte doesn’t own any football teams, and may not be a billionaire (he may be, we were just too shy to ask), but it’s nice that his place in history should now be confirmed.
    Diss-assembly

    But soft! The tale gets even more interesting. Griffiths’ friend Reuben Harris, a programmer based in London, has been disassembling the earliest Altair BASIC he could find. It’s the same 4K interpreter written by Gates, Allen and Davidoff, and the latter was evidently tickled by the project when we spoke to him on Thursday evening.

    Reuben tells us the results should be available in the next week or so. Stay tuned… ®
