Only at Apple...

12.38.39 - Mark

I know a few people who have worked for Apple and who hated the experience, but its odd that the "Better to be a Pirate than to join the Navy" mantra is still there in some extent. Specifically this story of Graphing Calculator. Graphing Calculator is a really cool app that shipped with a couple of OSes designed for the PPC systems. I remember discovering it while setting up some iMacs somewhere in Kanas (don't ask what I was doing in Kanas setting up iMacs) and how it produced some sweet animations among other things, in that regard those guys really did succeed in what they set out to do (make a really cool free app that shipped with a crap load of Macs)

That's a newer case, but I don't think there's another company on earth that invokes this sort of dedication. There's this page, those for Audion and Watson. Not to mention the hundreds of stories at folklore.org. That's just online too, there's a book developed from folklore.org, but several dead-tree books (and even a TV movie) on the subject of Apple's corporate culture. If nothing else Apple is an amazing company...

I tried to stop reading those memoirs, but what a great story! heh, and funny too. Reminds me of my governor's school days...
