I’m talking about the beige box with the blue grinning face that came to live with us in 1985. But I’m also talking about the font that came with it. It was the typeface Chicago that spelled out “Welcome to Macintosh,” ushering us into a new age of personal computing. But it was also a new age for digital type. Here was a typeface created explicitly for the Macintosh, part of designer Susan Kare’s strategy to customize everything from the characters to the icons — that happy computer, the wristwatch, an actual trashcan — to make it feel more human and less machine.  ★

"Do you remember anything?" the man says. "Do you know who you are?" He stares, trying to connect himself as he is now to something that existed before. There is nothing, and the concept fits strangely in his head, unsettled and instinctive and repulsive at the same time. "No," he says finally. The man doesn't nod and his expression doesn't change. He just waits for the length of a breath, not particularly deep, and then says, "Your name is Steve. Drink the water." [OK, the amnesia tag is a bit misleading? Sort of?
