Computer Museum Feature Story:
On February 6, 2002 I had the great pleasure of visiting Daniel Kottke in Palo Alto California. I have known Dan since the mid 90s and had always heard of his key role in the birth of modern personal computing, especially as one of the first Apple employees and a key part of the team that brought you the MacIntosh.
The next three pages just scratch the surface of Daniel's personal computing history through a photo gallery of some of his amazing Apple "relics". Don't think of "relic" as a dead sort of thing, in this context these are very alive as they form the very basis for millions of computers on your desk and mine. Take a look at his mind-blowingly early MacIntosh memorabilia, then the earliest Apple III and Apple II documentation, and lastly probably the first portable Apple computers designed to play music.
See also our re-scanning and in-depth documenting of all these relics at the Making the Mac pages and the Documenting the Mac pages, all part of our Mac at 20 site. Find out more about Daniel at the DigiBarn's pages on Daniel Kottke.
