MercuryNews: In 1976, Ron Wayne co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. He designed the company logo, wrote the manual for the Apple I computer, and drafted the partnership agreement that gave him a 10 percent stake in the company. Twelve days later, he sold that stake back for $800 because he was worried about the possibility of creditors coming after his assets.
If it had kept his share of the company, it would be worth $22 billion today.
Instead, Wayne lives in a small town in Nevada, where he spends his social security check on the penny slots. The MercuryNews offers an interesting profile of this 76-year-old who might have been one of the superstars of the tech industry.
