Ranging from home computers for entertainment and education to personal work-stations for design and presentation, microprocessor hardware spans the entire spectrum of graphic applications. Through live demonstrations of the latest and most popular hardware and software offerings, we hope to give you a feeling for the rapidly growing field of personal, “human scale” computing. The session will include a visual tour of the MacPaint package and the Quickdraw firmware on Apple's Macintosh personal computer, as well as brief demos of software for educational videogrames, low resolution typography and interactive, real-time animation. Depending on audience questions, we might also take a look at issues and trends involved in mass marketing of software, personalization of technology and ownership of knowledge...and what the ramifications might be for the future of computer graphics and the human (-) computer dialogue.
