Wow. Just yesterday I opened one of my favorite books, Revolution in the Valley, containing war stories about the creation of the Macintosh computer. I was reading all of the introductory matter carefully (the scans of an engineer's notebook) when I noticed that one of the pages contained signatures of several original members of the Mac team. Note in the accompanying photo the signatures of Woz, Bill Atkinson, Daniel Kottke, Caroline Rose, Andy Hertzfeld, Bud Tribble, and Susan Kare (with the ⌘ symbol).

This is really cool. It's funny to think that this is inside a book I bought for $12.99 from a used bookstore in Victoria BC several years ago.

Did you know?

I'm a software engineering consultant. This means I can help your company with your software engineering needs:

  • providing temporary manpower for short-staffed software projects

  • helping new software projects get off to a good architectural start

  • improving the performance and reliability of old, legacy software systems

  • doing an important investigation or small project that you've always wanted to do but haven't had time for

Since 1999, I have done software engineering projects for the Canadian government, for Silicon Valley startups, and for established Bay Area companies, for small companies and medium-sized companies, for successful commercial projects and open-source projects. 

Currently accepting small projects. If you have one, email or call me.
