I’m obviously late to the Apple II 35th birthday party. Being busy with life and writing and such drives those calculations right from one’s mind. Hope this bowl of fruit and bag of M&Ms from Wal-Mart helps…
As many others have posted today, this is the 35th anniversary of the First West Coast Computer Faire, at which Apple Computer, Inc. made its grand introduction of the Apple II computer. Harry McCracken has been the most prolific, with no less than three well done posts about this event:
- Fourteen Ways To Celebrate The Apple II’s 35th Birthday – which mentions my humble web site in the number 1 position; thank you Mr. McCracken!
- Photos: The Apple II Turns 35 – includes my famous VisiCalc screen shot.
- Apple II Forever: a 35th-Anniversary Tribute to Apple’s First Iconic Product – an accurate capsule history of the product
Perhaps this summer at KansasFest we’ll have some additional 35th birthday celebration!
