    I never really thought about life before these interfaces – I guess they did change the course of things.

    I think a lot of professions were changed completely because of the Mac. Typesetters are creatures of the past as are many pen and paper bound workers.

    I have a PC, but get the meaning. I was certainly not creative with it till windows, and windows came about thanks to Mac.

    Sometimes you are running around in virtual circles until you find that *one* tool that makes The Difference for the rest of your life. For some it’s an electrical playbox to make all kinds of “projects”, for others a Mac or a PC. The most important thing is that you keep looking around, because even if that Playbox seems to unlock your inner DaVinci, it might just be a step in an even more exciting direction, later in life. Keep looking!

    This keeps it real in the Mac world, no doubt.
