30th anniversary of the Macintosh

January 24th will be the 30th anniversary of the launch of the Macintosh and an event to celebrate is being planned by the Computer History Museum and Macworld. It will be held at the Flint Center in Cupertino, CA. where the original launch by Steve Jobs was held. Many of the team responsible for the design of the Mac will be there and all proceeds will go to charity. More information and tickets here. I remember using a Mac in the late 80s (to make diagrams for my PhD thesis) and I find it amazing how far the technology has come but in some ways it has changed. The original Macintosh's DNA is still there in my MacBook Pro.

  1. I feel somewhat privileged to have first used a Macintosh just before Xmas 1983. This was at the Apple HQ in Cupertino. The NZ Apple agent was endeavoring to get NZ Universities to join the Macintosh Consortium. Which we finally did after much worrying as to whether we could possibly pledge to purchase 100 Macs in the entire NZ university system. Our first Mac arrived later in 1984 - I have a MacPaint file showing a kitchen redesign that is dated August 1984 and it still opens in Preview!
