"Everything is rectangles."

Steve Jobs (via Peter Vidani)

Andy Hertzfeld, writing about QuickDraw’s development for the original Mac during May of 1981:

Bill fired up his demo and it quickly filled the Lisa screen with randomly-sized ovals, faster than you thought was possible. But something was bothering Steve Jobs. “Well, circles and ovals are good, but how about drawing rectangles with rounded corners? Can we do that now, too?”

“No, there’s no way to do that. In fact it would be really hard to do, and I don’t think we really need it”. I think Bill was a little miffed that Steve wasn’t raving over the fast ovals and still wanted more.

Steve suddenly got more intense. “Rectangles with rounded corners are everywhere! Just look around this room!”. And sure enough, there were lots of them, like the whiteboard and some of the desks and tables. Then he pointed out the window. “And look outside, there’s even more, practically everywhere you look!”. He even persuaded Bill to take a quick walk around the block with him, pointing out every rectangle with rounded corners that he could find.

When Steve and Bill passed a no-parking sign with rounded corners, it did the trick. “OK, I give up”, Bill pleaded. “I’ll see if it’s as hard as I thought.” He went back home to work on it.

I love that when building the first GUI, the only way to determine what features were important was walking around outside.

Didn’t think Ray would ever return to the Heat after his role on the stacked team I played in NBA Live 2004.

More nerds would be DJs if they knew that assembling a crate of records is just like building a Magic deck.
