Before Macintosh is an Apple Lisa documentary on Kickstarter exploring the history behind Apple’s device.
The work of Douglas Engelbart and his team, plus advances from the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) with their Alto and Star workstations were the progenitors of the Graphical User Interface (GUI), but the Apple Lisa stands as the clear foundation for what we all use today — Macintosh — Windows — iOS — Android.
The campaign goal is US$3,600, and it has raised US$2,401 so far.

One thought on “Before Macintosh: The Apple Lisa Documentary”
Buddy of mine had a Lisa; I had heard about Mac so I waited. $10,000 for 5 meg HD and 5MHz chip and no software of note made it a hard sell. Not the last fail Jobs would launch – see the Camera , Newton, Portable Mac & others but you only need to write ONE timeless hit song to make it in music history (make it a xmas song if you can – guaranteed play forever once a year).. Yep, I remember Lisa – & “Twiggy” floppy format too. 📺
