A History of Macintosh Networking

This site was created as part of the Macintosh 20th-anniversary MacWorld keynote talk "A History of Macintosh Networking" given by Open Door's president, Alan Oppenheimer (who has lived through pretty much all of that history, either inside or just outside of Apple). The slides from the talk are pointed to by the various pictures on the timeline below, or you can start here. We want to maintain and enhance this site, so if you have any historical items you would like added, please e-mail alan (at) opendoor.com. Thanks.
