    • I remember Wayne when the two of us were at NeXT. Much later, Alan Eyzaguirre and Wayne set up a company advising firms on communications. I first met Alan when he was a DB programmer for one of the early NeXT 3-party developer firms. Alan had a long career at Apple including running Apple Maac Software Marketing for Europe, based in London.

    • Thank you, Scott. I posted this little story to my personal Facebook page and someone picked it up and put in on Hacker News where it went to near the top, where there was great conversation about it.

      In my interview with Wayne, he said that iMac intro was one of the times Steve really dressed them down and they wanted to melt into the floor, because when the iMacs were unveiled, the mechanism to raise them wasn't fluid enough. No one else noticed, but Steve did and it made him crazy.

    • Love the story Chris! I would not have wanted to be in your shoes :-)

      The only time I saw Steve Jobs was when he presented the Next computer in Boston. I think it was at the Boston Computer Club meeting? Quite the showman.
