Hal Prewitt recently visited the Park City TV studios to talk about his career as a computer pioneer, race car driver and now Prewitt Gallery owner in Park City.   In the 1970s and 1980s he was one of the early creators of personal computer products, developing popular software and hardware while helping build a new industry. He provided consulting services to IBM and is credited with inventing hard disk drives and a local area network (LAN) for their first portable computer the IBM 5100, and their first desktop computer the IBM 5120. Utilizing his skills in computer programming and engineering, Prewitt founded and managed a number of technology firms. The largest and best known was Core International, a developer of disk array, computer data storage and backup products. Prewitt was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer until 1993 when the company was sold to Sony. Many of these original products are on display in the Gallery.
