True Tales From Our Not Too Distant Analog Past: Jason Holley

Last week we attended ICON6 in Pasadena, where Jason Holley presented a series of hilarious animations and they were a huge hit.  Fortunately for the rest of you, he’s posted one of them online. Fabulous!

MacPaint Enters the Museum

Drawing by Susan Kare. Image by Apple
As a 10-year old MacPaint was my absolute favorite program. I would create birthday cards and signs. Although I didn't realize it at the time, it probably started my career as a graphic designer.
Now Apple has donated the original source code of MacPaint and QuickDraw to the Computer History Museum, which is even available for download. For those of us who are less interested in code, the Museum tells the history of these revolutionary programs.
