    In the beginning NB was founded by people 
interested in programming and computers, electronics, 
sewing, film photography, visual arts, and music. 

    The idea that founding NB was solely by 
computer hackers is wrong! 

    The idea was to welcome anyone with any interests 
that might work with others.
