Let’s just say yes up front. If you’re a Mac user, now or at any point, you probably remember the models you used with great, perhaps alarming, clarity. Perhaps the first one was at school, or a friend’s house. Most likely not the office, but there are exceptions. You may have vivid memories of some aspects of the then-current OS: some version of 7 or 8, or, if you’re on that side of thirty, maybe Jaguar or Panther. Maybe even iOS. Maybe you remember beige Macs; maybe bondi. Maybe all you know is aluminum and white polycarbonate.
Many years ago, while teaching, on one of those interminable Professional Development daze, the one inspiring presentation I saw was by a law professor, explaining how he was using the web in his courses on First Nations and Justice to build an academic journal. Every section of the class planned and wrote a peer-reviewed and edited issue, which built on previous years’ work, and would in turn be built on. He and his students used the web as a viable publishing platform in a way print never could be, economically or technically.
