Very excited to share that Western Reserve Public Media, a PBS affiliate in Ohio starts broadcasting our 5-part series with Silicon Valley pioneers Bill Atkinson and Andy Hertzfeld. The series airs on WNEO’s Fusion channel starting on Monday, Aug 5, 2019 at 8.30 pm.
Atkinson and Hertzfeld joined Apple Computers in the late 1970s and were part of the original Macintosh team and made significant contributions. Atkinson is the creator of HyperCard, Dropdown menu, double-click and much more. Hertzfeld was known as the “software wizard,” at Apple. After Apple, both of them became entrepreneurs and started a company in 1990. The startup was called General Magic that they founded with Marc Porat.
The 5-part series explores why Atkinson and Hertzfeld decided to leave their graduate studies and work at Apple, what were their contributions to Apple’s products esp the original Macintosh and why they decided to become entrepreneurs and their work at General Magic.
Here is the schedule:
