Welcome to Macintosh, worth a spot in your queue

Over the weekend I watched Welcome to Macintosh (official site, IMDB) a documentary about the Macintosh by directors Robert Baca and Josh Rizzo. In it Mac pioneers like Andy Hertzfeld and Guy Kawasaki wax philosophical about the early days at Apple and the roots of the Mac.

From the IMDB synopsis:

"Welcome to Macintosh" is a documentary that mixes history, criticism and an unapologetic revelry of all things Apple. Whether a long time Mac fanatic or new to computers, Welcome to Macintosh explores the many ways Apple Computer (now Apple, Inc.) has changed the world, from the early days of the Apple-I to the latest the company has to offer.

A memorable scene is when the early Apple didn't have enough computers to go around so they gave designer Susan Kare a pad of graph paper and told her to design some icons on paper. Naturally, she did a fantastic job. And how about the one guy's Mac museum (which you can see in the clip above), it's impressive.

Any self-respecting Mac geek should have Welcome to Macintosh in their Netflix queue. It's worth the nostalgic trip down memory lane.
