I've been reading some of the development stories from the first Macintosh team on They're very cool, some of them are quite harrowing.

Here are some notes taken by Andy Hertzfeld at an Alan Kay talk.

Here's how Bill Atkinson invented the "marching ants" selection boundary for MacPaint. 

Steve Wozniak, Bill Atkinson and Andy Hertzfeld can be seen in this documentary shot at a retreat hosted by Stewart Brand (author of the Whole Earth Catalog, and the best book about architecture ever written.) I posted a link to this video a while ago, but it's noteworthy enough repost. It also has footage of RMS playing Tapper.
