Andy Hertzfeld on the Macintosh, Steve Jobs and General Magic (REPLAY)

Danielle Newnham Podcast

It’s hard to believe it but has been a year now since I kicked off the show and as I have gained tens of thousands of new listeners since then, I thought it might be nice to head back in time and re-share my very first guest – the one and only - Andy Hertzfeld who also happens to be one of my favourite people in tech.  Andy helped revolutionise the home PC industry as part of the original Macintosh team before founding his own startups including General Magic which imagined the iPhone - seventeen years ahead of time. In this conversation which was recorded on 11th November 2020,  Andy Hertzfeld shares his inspiring story from childhood through to creating the Macintosh and on to General Magic including the highs and lows along the way.We discuss his career and friendship with Steve Jobs and what it takes to hold a seemingly impossible vision, build a pioneering team capable of achieving it and, most importantly, when and how best to execute.There are many great stories in this episode, and anecdotes of a pivotal time in tech history but, best of all, Andy shares the lessons he learned from the successes, and the failures.Enjoy!Andy Twitter / WebsiteDanielle Twitter / Instagram / NewsletterNotesIn this episode, Andy and I discuss:"Marc" which is Marc Porat - the co-founder of General Magic with Andy and Bill Atkinson. In 1990, Marc wrote the following note to John Sculley, imagining a truly smart phone: "A tiny computer, a phone, a very personal object . . . It must be beautiful. It must offer the kind of personal satisfaction that a fine piece of jewellery brings. It will have a perceived value even when it's not being used... Once you use it you won't be able to live without it." NB My interview with Marc can be found here.The General Magic documentary can be found on iTunes here.Andy's book - Revolution in The Valley: The Insanely Great Story of How the Mac Was Made - can be bought here.Series 1 of this podcast and the original episode with Andy was sponsored by Sensate and edited  by Jolin Cheng.

Hacking the Afterlife with Jennifer Shaffer Super Bowl edition with a visit from Steve Jobs

Hacking The Afterlife podcast

Even writing the headline for these podcasts is problematic. Do we know for a fact this was Steve Jobs coming for a chat? No. Jennifer has done a session with his daughter, and Steve has come forward a number of other times to answer questions. As noted in the podcast, she was doubting it was him at first as well. Yes, we discuss the winner of the Super Bowl. Because everyone out there who wants to meet with a medium, wants to use their powers to discern the future. And we have a healthy discussion about what that entails and why that might be important or unhealthy, depending. Steve came forward to let us know he's working on a "cell phone" to the flipside from his side of the veil. That isn't a device, something you can hold in your hand - although he did encourage me to create an app to do so - but he was talking about helping those on the flipside to "lower their frequency" to communicate with their pals, loved ones, relatives on the denser side - the side we are in on the planet. For those keeping track; the three step process is 1. Love. 2. Stay open. 3. Just listen.   It sounds impossibly vague, but if one has spent over a decade chatting with folks on the flipside via hypnotherapy, mediumship and meditation, it's a lot more complex than it sounds.  But it's a lot less complex than it sounds. If someone wants to help me create an app, by all means, reach out to MartiniProds at gmail.  If one wants to complain that none of this is possible or logical - hold that thought, as we're focusing on experience or data that helps folks to reach out to the flipside. Enjoy the game, even if now you know what the outcome will be!
