"Macintosh Unveiling" Demo Floppy

Hey!

I was watching the "Macintosh Unvieling Video" today.
Somewhere in the middle of it, Steve pulls out a floppy, inserts it into the Macintosh & a demo runs.

Does anyone have or know where ta *get this demo?
I think it'd make a nice keepsake.

If ya *have it or know where ta *get it, *please email me > cary@easy.com

Later!

Andy Hertzfeld and a few others wrote this the night before the keynote. I don't think it was ever published.

Oh, but what a great find it would be if someone actually found it!

Something tells me that Steve

Something tells me that Steve Jobs keeps it mounted on a frame on his wall, sort of as a holy grail kinda thing. After all, without that demo, what are the chances that Apple would grow to be this big?

That's a tough call; Apple came to prominence as a result of the successful Apple II series of computers. Apple, in some respects, is no longer the goliath it once was.

You used to be big, you had the Apple II. What happened?

I am big, it's the Apple II that got small

ha ha ha
