What Was It Like to Be at Xerox Parc When Steve Jobs Visited? - Quora


Loved this blast from the past from Alan Kay, including a headline from an article he published in 1977 (see below).  Amazingly, forty years later, we're still living in Alan Kay's future.  Also contains some great stuff on what Jobs grasped immediately when he saw the Xerox PARC system, and what he didn't.  Fun read.

"Rates of progress in microelectronics suggest that in about a decade many people will possess a notebook-size computer with the capacity of a large computer of today.  What might such a system do for them?"    Alan Kay, 1977
