MacHack 2001 Keynote Announced

MacHack 2001: Keynote Announced: The Ultimate Macintosh Engineering Reunion

February 8, 2001-Dearborn, MI- In 1981 the computer industry was changing.
A little company in Cupertino, CA, had already made a greater move toward
personalizing computer technology than any other that came before. That
company was, of course, Apple Computer, Inc.; the industry leader that grew
out of the fabled garage.

Things were poised to change again. Behind closed doors in Cupertino, an
engineering team was gathered to revolutionize computing and bring a new
level of usability to light.

Rarely has a significant portion of the original Macintosh team come
together to reminisce and to look ahead. MacHack is pleased to announce a
keynote as much about making history as it is about history, a keynote
panel from the halls of Cupertino:

Andy Hertzfeld

Andy was a graduate student at UC Berkeley in January 1978 when he
purchased an Apple II personal computer, and it changed his life. He went
to work for Apple Computer in August 1979, creating peripherals and system
software for the Apple II. He became a member of the original Macintosh
team in February 1981 and designed and implemented a large fraction of the
original Macintosh system software, including the User Interface Toolbox.
After leaving Apple in March 1984, Andy worked independently, designing the
software for several Macintosh products, including ThunderScan, Switcher
and the Radius Full Page Display. In May 1990, Andy co-founded General
Magic, where he was the lead developer of the innovative Magic Cap platform
for personal intelligent communicators. Andy is passionate about writing
ground-breaking software that makes computers easy and fun to use and hopes
to continue doing so at Eazel.

Guy "Bud" Tribble

Bud is one of the industry's noted experts in object-oriented programming
and user-interface design. Prior to joining Eazel, he was VP and chief
technology officer for the Sun-Netscape Alliance, responsible for guiding
Internet and e-commerce software R&D. He held several VP-level positions at
Sun during the past seven years. Bud began his career at Apple Computer,
where in 1981, he was manager of the original Macintosh Software team,
helping design the MacOS and user interface. In 1985, he helped found NeXT
Computer, where he was VP of Software Engineering and a key architect of
the NeXtstep operating system, a groundbreaking software environment.
Bud earned a B.A. degree in biophysics from the University of California,
San Diego, and an M.D. and Ph.D. in neurophysiology from the University of
Washington.

Caroline Rose

Caroline Rose worked for Apple Computer in two stints totaling nearly 10
years. She edited and wrote most of the first three volumes of Inside
Macintosh, and five years later (after managing the Publications group at
NeXT) she returned to become the editor of develop, Apple's technical
journal for Mac developers. Caroline now enjoys working as a freelance
writer and editor; for more information, see her website
(http://www.differnet.com/crose).

This trio of speakers is empanelled not just as a retrospective on the
Macintosh as we knew it, but to look forward and share their visions of the
future of computing from Macintosh to MacOS X; from the Toolbox to Eazel's
Nautilus and everything in between.

MacHack 2001 will take place June 21-23, 2001, in Dearborn, Michigan. This
unprecedented keynote panel will convene at the traditional 12:01 AM on
June 21 to kick off the 72-hour marathon conference. More information is
available on the Web from (http://www.machack.com/).
For attendees, discounted registration is available for early response.
Full attendees can register for $425 online, a savings of $100 of the
regular registration rate, students can register for $50 which includes
all-access to the conference as well as a special meal package. Total
attendance is limited to 400. Student attendance is limited to 50. More
details are available on the conference website.
