Illustrator 1.0 – The complete video

Last year I uploaded the first ten or so minutes of the instructional video that accompanied Illustrator 1.0, hosted by Adobe co-founder/Illustrator developer John Warnock. I received some requests for the full recording, and now Adobe evangelist Rufus Deuchler has tuned up the audio & posted the entire video, split into five segments.

Seeing the video, and remembering that Dr. Warnock was (as I recall) one of just four names on the Illustrator splash screen, I can’t help but think of videos posted now by the developers/founders/executives/chief bottle-washers of various Twitter-related startups. (Here’s a good one for Birdhouse.) 20 years from now, will we be passing around one of these links, remembering when so-and-so got her start?

    I’m sad to say, I didn’t keep the video, but I do have the manual and disks for Illustrator 88.
    Illustrator has been berry, berry good to me. I was fortunate enough to get some of the stock at the IPO and its made me a few bucks (along with the software) along the way. ;-)
