Austin’s PBS station KLRU is broadcasting our 5-part series with Andy Hertzfeld and Bill Atkinson, who were the original members of the Macintosh team at Apple. After working at Apple they left to start their own startup. Atkinson, Hertzfeld and Marc Porat co-founded General Magic, one of the hottest startups in Silicon Valley in the 1990s. Their goal was to create a personal communicator. They created the product, but it did not gain traction in the market. General Magic’s DNA survived and gained traction in all those smart devices that we use today – iPad, iPhone and Android phones.
You can catch the episodes on Austin’s @KLRU Q on Tuesdays and Mondays at the following times in May 2019.
