Original Mac introduction at Boston Computer Society becomes public for first time


By

A new video is available of Steve Jobs demoing the original Macintosh. It's similar to the famous presentation for Apple shareholders, but this one for the Boston Computer Society would seem to be the original SteveNote. The video is pretty cool, but so is the story behind it. Harry McCracken details it for TIME:

"This one was Steve really selling," says [VisiCalc Co-Creator Dan] Bricklin, who has shown clips of the presentation in talks to students for years, in the only instances of it being seen in public since it was recorded. "This is the Steve that we've now known for many years announcing other products. This is that Steve, giving the talk he's given so many times that he knows it cold. It really makes a difference."


"You get to see Steve when Steve became the Steve Jobs. Seeing him smiling up there is the way a lot of us would like to remember him."
