The History of the Macintosh
Through the Advertisements of Apple Computer, Inc.
What originally switched you on to the Mac? For many of us it was a friend or co-worker whose enthusiasm for their computer somehow caught on. For others it was one Apple’s punchy advertisements in magazines or on TV. If you’re in the latter category you may well remember that first Apple ad with a sense of misty-eyed nostalgia.
To help celebrate Twenty Mac Years, Nicholas Pyers will give a series of presentations, on the History of the Macintosh, through the Advertisements of Apple Computer, Inc.
Nicholas will be presenting in Melbourne, Australia; Castlemaine, Australia; and Wellington, New Zealand during August, September and November 2004.
