Who invented the Wizard?Posted 4692 days ago on February 2, 2004
Google has failed me, so... does anyone out there know who invented the wizard? By which I mean the step-by-step dialogs commonly found in all sorts of software (question arises from my work reviewing programming IDEs)?
Excel's Chart Wizard? Or I have a vague recollection that Microsoft Publisher 1.0 was an early example? Having said which, someone will pop up and say it has nothing to do with Microsoft...
Update - see this more recent post as a wizard inventor has now come forward.
