Apple recently released macOS Sierra, the latest version of the Mac operating system. It had new features in it, but one of the most notable changes was something it left out — the X, the Roman numeral 10, from the name. It's a small, unimportant change, but it's kind of the end of an era. I talked to Apple history buff Stephen Hackett to reflect on the name's past.

After a long time away, Welcome to Macintosh is coming back. I'm working on some incredible new episodes for the most ambitious season of Welcome to Macintosh yet. But to be able to make it, I need your help. I'm launching a Kickstarter campaign today to raise the costs of production — including travel, editing assistance, and music licenses, among other things. And in exchange, you can get some great rewards, like Kickstarter bonus content, laptop stickers, and super comfy t-shirts. Go check it out.

Each Wednesday until the Kickstarter ends I'll be releasing little mini-episodes. There are some previews of stories I'm working on, little clips from the field, and just moments that didn't fit anywhere else.

Please, check out the Kickstarter, and pledge whatever you can. Help me make the greatest episodes of Welcome to Macintosh yet.
