Back in 1984 when the Macintosh first came out, I was one of the founding members of the Boston Computer Society's Macintosh Users Group. It was a very exciting time. Steve Jobs unveiled the Mac to our users group. We were in an auditorium that held over 500 people.
The first to speak was the Macintosh itself. "Hello, I am Macintosh," it said. That was sooo cool. We all cheered. That meeting was the best compter presentation I have ever been to. It was like a revival meeting. Steve Jobs rocked the house.
Everything was so new back then. You could actually see the fonts on the screen, you could paint pictures, you could even copy and paste a picture in to a letter. Wow!
Here's a story that reminds me of the excitement of the early days of the Mac.
