The Chicago Apple User Group is very proud to bring Ted Landau to our May 2, 2012 meeting. Ted’s interest in computers goes to a time before there was a Mac or even an Apple I.
Ted’s bio By the early 1980s, Ted was using an Apple II at work. He was at a local computer store the very day the Mac came out, and bought one on the very first day.
Ted initially worked for MACazine (with Bob LeVitus as his editor!) Bob got Ted’s writing career off the ground. Ted wound up writing many columns for many Mac publications. This blossomed into several of the most famous and best selling books of all time on the Mac. The very first one was titled Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters. Here for the first time someone showed the rest of us how to systematically and calmly address virtually any problem we had on the Mac at work or at home. It went through four editions, the last one in 2000.
Perhaps his most famous endeavor was macfixit.com, a web site that addressed all the current problems and issues of the day. Ted was involved with MacFixIt through 2009, and it is one of the most successful Mac sites of all time. MacFixIt won many awards in the day for all the great help it provided to all of us.
Why you should come Ted truly is a living legend in the world of all things Apple. This is a very rare opportunity to see one of the best live via video. This will go way beyond what you can pick up from a web page or reading text. This is Ted Landau live, a real treat for all of us. Please feel free to bring friends and colleagues.
