Happy Spreadsheet Day 2016
Happy Spreadsheet Day 2016, and thanks for visiting this website today.
I started Spreadsheet Day in 2010, and after a vote, we chose October 17th as the date for the annual celebration. That’s the date on which VisiCalc was first released, way back in 1979.
Spreadsheet Hall of Fame Voting
Last year, we voted for the spreadsheet programs that should be inducted into the virtual Spreadsheet Hall of Fame.
You could vote for your first, second and third choices, and the votes were scored.
- Choice 1 = 3 points
- Choice 2 = 2 points
- Choice 3 = 3 points
Spreadsheet Hall of Fame 2016
Based on the points awarded for the votes, the top 3 programs, and first to be inducted into the Spreadsheet Hall of Fame are:
- Microsoft Excel
- Lotus 1-2-3
Learn more about the history of these 3 programs, in the videos on the the Spreadsheet Hall of Fame page.
