We gratefully acknowledge the assistance (and endless patience) of the Special Collections staff of the Stanford University Library; the staff at the Meyer Multimedia Studio; and our colleagues in the Humanities and Area Studies Research Group. Michael Dennis, Michael Hiltzig, Tim Lenoir, Henry Lowood, David Plotnikoff, Amy Slaton, and G. Pascal Zachary offered valuable suggestions and encouragement.
This site could not have been created without those developers, designers, engineers, writers, user group founders, and entrepreneurs who made the Macintosh, and have so generously shared their time, memories, and old files. We especially thank Bill Atkinson, David Casseres, Raines Cohen, Andy Cunningham, Douglas Dayton, Chris Espinosa, Dean Hovey, Brian Howard, Reese Jones, Barbara Krause, Bill Lapson, Harvey Lehtman, John Markoff, Sandy Miranda, Jef Raskin, Evelyn Richards, Caroline Rose, Theodore Roszak, Jim Sachs, Rickson Sun, Larry Tesler, and Jim Yurchenco.
For their good work identifying typos and other errors, thanks to Nicholas Sanders and Craig Aldrich (who aren't the only ones to send in error reports, but win on volume).
