WWDC 1997 Videos and Other History

Brendan Shanks:

If you liked the slides, you’ll find the videos fascinating. In particular, the overview/strategy speakers take pains to emphasize what has changed since the year before: developing rather than abandoning the Mac OS, promising to ship regular incremental improvements, and moving ahead with a next-generation OS (Rhapsody) built on shipping, proven technology.

Riccardo Mori:

Thirty years of Mac ads - 1984-2014. (Love the early ones!)

Jason Kottke:

This 1985 catalog for engineers contains hundreds and hundreds of tech logos from the 70s and 80s. They are glorious.

I really like the Marquardt Switches logo. I was happy to see they still exist and are smart enough to have not changed it.

There were also some logos that brought back memories. Cromemco, the first computer I used at my high school. Toa, music equipment I used when I worked at Computers & Music in Daly City in the ’80s.
