Twiggy Lives! At the Computer Museum

Many of the Macintosh team members gathered Wednesday, Sept. 11 2013 to play with one of the original “Twiggy Mac” prototypes still in running condition. As one journalist pointed out “It was more like a party than a Demo” — but perhaps that was by design.

After all, more important than the machines – is the people. The Mac really is that magical blend of both – man and machine. These are [some!] the Apple Macintosh Development Team folks that were given the challenge and succeeded, in changing the world.
