We’ve lived with disruption and pitchforks for a long time. But the present always feels more perilous to us. My latest feature for Applied Arts Magazine takes us back to 1984 when that nine-inch comet, The Macintosh, first hit planet earth. It blew up desktop publishing and sent X-Acto knives and fuming glue pots flying in every direction. It also galvanized typesetters in a battle they had no chance of winning. Update: we’re still here, folks, and still publishing. The good news is, we’ve moved beyond beige.
