In the News "The man who created the Mac interface gives his son Aza Raskin a final gift that that testifies to the beauty and power of simplicity." A very touching story about the final days of one of the greatest minds in the technology world. A must-read.

And the final Macintosh is very far from what Jef Raskin wanted it to be, so I'm not sure we can call him the "Mac Inventor". But well...

IIRC, the Canon Cat was what Raskin was going for, FWIW.
