Jef Raskin, Macintosh inventor, looks to the future of computing

“Twenty years ago, Pacifica resident Jef Raskin was a 40-year-old software designer and writer for Apple Computers. He was also a cutting-edge thinker, (he still is, by the way), who imagined a world of connected computers providing infinite bits of information to people sitting at home in front of user-friendly machines. He imagined those machines would be named after his favorite fruit – the Macintosh apple, and that they would have a very simple, graphic interface; designed to be used the way humans think and work, not the way machines do.” (Chris Hunter – Pacifica Tribune) – courtesy of lawrence lee
