Thirty years later, Silicon Valley is commemorating the event. On January 25, All Planet Studios, the Computer History Museum, and Macworld/iWorld are throwing a bash at the Flint Center in Cupertino, Calif., where Jobs first made the announcement.
The night will include a panel with some of the original Mac developing team, and Ridley Scott, who directed the company's iconic "1984" commercial, will discuss the famous ad. Daniel Kottke, one of the earliest employees at Apple, will be one of the evening's main hosts. Other guests will include author and Wired writer Steven Levy and others from the early Apple team.
Proceeds from ticket sales will go to Coder Dojo, a not-for-profit organization that teaches Web development and programming to young people.
