Three months later, we joined Microsoft to manage its new business unit in Silicon Valley and to continue our work on Power Point, aiming to complete the full product vision which couldn’t be included in the first release (which we did, five years later, in Power Point 3.0).Sweating Bullets: Notes about Inventing Power Point “Power Point was the first presentation software designed for Macintosh and Windows, received the first venture capital investment ever made by Apple, then became the first significant acquisition ever made by Microsoft, and is now, twenty-five years later, installed on over one billion computers worldwide.” “Robert Gaskins (who invented the idea, managed its design and development, and then headed the new Microsoft group) has written this book to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of Power Point, recounting stories of the perils narrowly evaded as a startup, dissecting the complexities of being the first distant development group in Microsoft, and explaining decisions and insights that enabled Power Point to become a lasting success.” Published by Vinland Books 2012, Hardcover 6" × 9", 512 pp., $35.00 (ISBN: 978-0-9851424-0-7) Full PDF searchable, 512 pp., Free (ISBN: 978-0-9851424-1-4) Paperback 6" × 9", 512 pp., $17.99 (ISBN: 978-0-9851424-2-1) Ebook for Kindle (all platforms), $2.99 (ISBN: 978-0-9851424-3-8) Ebook EPUB , $2.99 (ISBN: 978-0-9851424-4-5) Hardcover and paperback formats are available worldwide at, Amazon UK, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain, Amazon Italy, Amazon Canada, Amazon Japan, Amazon China, Amazon India, or buy from Barnes and Noble, or buy from booksellers around the world via Abebooks, or find the book from a local independent bookstore via Indiebound, or order online with free worldwide shipping to over 100 countries .

Following on some interim releases, Power Point 3.0 marked the completion of the full original product vision of Power Point 1.0, shipped five years earlier; and it turned out to be the basis for continued evolution over another twenty-five years, so far.Update: A reader familiar with the team writes to point out that, out of the list of 60 names above, 41 Microsoft people were in technical engineering positions (development, program management, or quality assurance): 22 men (54%) and 19 women (46%).The reader notes: “That was a very unusual balance in 1992, and would still be unusual today.” Link for a large (8 MB) version of the group photo above (without numbers): Photo: the core team that created Power Point 3.0 in 1992.First, it was my idea and I started working on it in July of 1984.Second, Dennis Austin very soon joined me, in October 1984, and we then worked closely together for about a year and a half—a lifetime in startup years.Although initially planned for Windows, the first version was shipped for Macintosh.

Three people made the earliest and most critical contributions.

Third, in May of 1986 we were joined by Tom Rudkin, and the three of us worked together for about another year—another good long time.

At the end of that period, nearly three years of intensive work, we shipped Power Point 1.0 for Mac, with the program files on the diskettes dated 20 April 1987.
