Hi. All my current writing is over at Audacious Fox, and I'd love to show you around. Thanks for reading.

'Special'

Out of all the nostalgic posts regarding the Macintosh’s 30th birthday, I like John Gruber’s anecdotal piece the best:

For one thing, they [the original Macintosh team] sweated the details. The greatest testimony to their genius is just how much of that original design is recognizable in today’s Mac OS X 10.9. A Mac user from 1984 could sit down in front of an iMac or MacBook today and recognize it as a successor to that original machine. That’s simply amazing.

I really enjoy when Gruber opines on the business of Apple, but I think his articles about the products of Apple are particularly insightful and special.
