“Sports were another outlet to blow off steam between longs hours of working. In the spring of 1983, we managed to get facilities to install a basketball hoop in the back of Bandley 4, and usually played a half-court game every afternoon. We also had co-ed softball games once per month, which could sometimes get pretty intense.”
“Bill Atkinson began writing MacPaint in February 1983, just after Susan Kare joined the Mac team to design bitmaps for fonts and icons. Susan became one of the first and most accomplished users of MacPaint, trying out new features as they were developed and using it for a wide range of practical applications.
Susan kept a notebook of many of the MacPaint documents that she created as the Mac team struggled to finish the Macintosh throughout 1983. They provide an interesting glimpse of the daily life of the Mac team during that period.” — Andy Hertzfeld, Folklore.org
“The Mac group worked hard, but we occasionally had parties thrown by Apple for the team, sometimes with unusual themes. This poster promoted our ‘Punk Party’, which we were supposed to attend in ‘punk’ attire.”
