On November 19, 2004, the Software History Center (the predecessor to the Software Industry Special Industry Group) convened a second meeting of PC Software pioneers to share their knowledge of the early days of the PC software industry and record their recollections of the events and people that shaped the industry.  This meeting was held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA and included three workshops on various aspects of the PC software industry.  The workshops were recorded and the transcripts have been edited and posted on the Computer History Museum's Oral History website.  The workshops are listed below with links to the transcripts.
