30 Years

Last Friday marked 30 years to the day since the release of the very first Macintosh. It's no surprise that Apple created a wonderful microsite to celebrate.

Thirty years ago, Apple introduced the Macintosh with the promise to put the creative power of technology in everyone’s hands. It launched a generation of innovators who continue to change the world. This 30‑year timeline celebrates some of those pioneers and the profound impact they’ve made.

Browsing through the timeline, I'm struck with a sense of nostalgia, followed by the inescapable realization that I'm getting old.
