Thirty years ago today, I demoed a Mac while Steve Jobs watched.

Two days ago, January 24th, was the 30th anniversary of the now famous 1984 ad during the Superbowl
announcing the first Apple Macintosh.

According to news reports from last Friday, the Mac then hit the stores two day later, or thirty years ago today.

It was on that day I had my geekiest moment in my long life and career in technology.

Steve Jobs saw me demonstrating the Macintosh.

I was recently at a tech meeting that had many Apple faithful in it.  We were asked to go around the room and each tell one interesting them about themselves.

I told this story.

I wrote a blog post about it five years ago on the 25th anniversary.  The link is here.
