Jef Raskin died of pancreatic cancer yesterday at the young age of 61. When I heard this on the radio this morning I recognized the name, but that was all. They said “the inventor of the Mac has died.” That caught my attention, of course, being a MacPerson all the way. While getting breakfast I asked my husband, Dan, if he had heard that news (knowing he knows much more than I about all things Mac). He had.
Later Dan sent me a link to Raskin’s unpublished work The Merry, Exciting Life of the Musician! with the comment: “I did not realize that he had extensive musical background.” I didn’t know this either.
Indeed he did. Check out the article. It’s worth your time.
