Adam Tow A personal history of the Newton

My talk will center around my personal history with Newton. It will cover my introduction to the original MessagePad as a college freshman in 1993, the creation of Foundation Systems in my dorm room, the Newton Protest I organized days after the product's cancellation in February, 1998, and the Newton's renaissance in recent years.


Adam Tow is a leading figure in the Newton world, for his personal implication in both the Newton history, and the Newton software development. He is currently the president of the SNUG (Stanford Newton User Group), a software developer, and a successful photographer.
