The Apple Macintosh Marketing History [Video]

An interesting and lengthy clip from 2004, showing six mean who were part of the legendary Macintosh team in the 80s, talking about the making of the original Mac and the whole marketing process behind it. Lots of anecdotes about Steve Jobs, too.

The six are Mike Murray (director of marketing), Mike Boich (the original Macintosh evangelist), Andy Cunningham (member of the Regis-McKenna PR team), Joanna Hoffman (the first marketing person in the Macintosh Division), Steve Scheier (ran the product launch), and Guy Kawasaki (evangelist).
