Jef Raskin, the Father of the Macintosh, Dies at age 61

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Jef Raskin, who most consider the father of the Macintosh computer.

Mr. Raskin was born March 9, 1943, and died on February 26, 2005. He joined Apple as employee #31 in January 1978. It was Mr. Raskin who started the Macintosh project at Apple Computer, with the idea of creating a cheap and easy to use computer marketed to the masses.

MyMac.com conducted an interview with Mr. Raskin back in September 1999. We asked him if, at the time, not receiving credit for his role in creating the Macintosh was upsetting. He wrote “I am upset when the creation of the Mac is attributed to Jobs. It’s sloppy reporting. On the other hand, Jobs’ role in bringing the Mac out was also crucial, as were the contributions of hundreds, indeed, thousands of others at Apple and elsewhere.”
