Ahhhhh, those were heady days... I was at that Boston MacWorld (visiting 
on my first trip from Australia). Someone recommended that I go check 
out this new "HyperCard" and I saw Bill Atkinson presenting it. I ended 
up scoring an "ACME Bowling" team jacket (which was the HyperCard 
developer team official apparel. Ended up working at Apple, developing 
HyperCard toolkits, templates etc...

Ya gotta love that I was able to open some of my developer tool stacks 
from that time in Rev and it still all worked.
