Jim Schuyler, Founder of DesignWare
Jim Schuyler was Founder of DesignWare. Founded in 1980,
Designware created educational software that was published by other
companies — including SRA, Xerox, and Spinnaker — as well as
software that it published under its own label. Designware's titles
included Creature Creator, Grammar Examiner, Mission: Algebra,
Spellicopter, and Trap-a-Zoid, among others. Jim programmed Story
Machine himself, which was published by Spinnaker Software.
Designware was acquired by PeachTree in 1984.
