San Jose State University MacFest
Just a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate the support that Bill gave us at San Jose State University last week.
Recently, the President of SJSU invited John Scully [Apple's president] to visit the university to meet the students and faculty and have a book signing ceremony. Along with John's visit we put together a MacFest that showed key software and hardware supporting the Macintosh. This show was scheduled for Monday November the 16th. On the 11th hour of our preparation we were notified that one of our speakers was unable to attend the show and he had no replacement in mind. We were faced with a potential disaster.
Craig Weinland, our University MSR, called Bill at home at 11PM the Sunday before the meeting, requesting his help. Bill was gracious enough to rearrange his calendar and help us out of this situation. Of course Bill had no obligation to get involved but in the spirit of "One Apple" he did. In fact his presentation was the hit of the show.
On behalf of my team, I would like to thank Bill for his support, and if there is anything that we can do for you please don't hesitate to call us.
