Here’s what the first Macworld looked like in 1985


The first MacWorld in 1985 looked much different than the current incarnation, which peaked with more than 50,000 attendees at Moscone Center several years ago.

The show starts this week and, while it is the barest shadow of what it was in its glory days, it’s still a show I miss going to if only for the friends and colleagues who are there.

    How odd. SFGate is suggesting the show is past its peak. And yet I hear virtually nothing about this in the Mac tech press.

    • Not true. Some of us have been saying it for years. But, as most of the Mac Media have a dog in the hunt, they won’t criticize the show for fear of biting the hand they perceive feeds them.

        • LOL Not if you know how far up IDG’s ass most of the Mac Media is. 🙂
