Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael S. Tomczyk is best known for his role in the development and marketing of the Commodore VIC-20, the first microcomputer to sell one million units; and for his early role as a pioneer in telecomputing. More broadly, he has come to be known as a technology futurist through his activities as Managing Director of the Mack Center for Technological Innovation at the Wharton School, which he joined in 1995. In early 1980, Tomczyk joined Commodore as Marketing Strategist and Assistant to the President. When Tramiel announced that he wanted to develop a low cost affordable home computer "for the masses, not the classes," Tomczyk embraced the concept and aggressively championed the new computer, insisting that it be "user friendly."show more
