Drexel University Libraries to Remember Steve Jobs and the Microcomputer Project that Forever connected Apple Computers with the Drexel Campus

November 1, 2011 (Philadelphia, PA) -- On Thursday, November 10th, Drexel University Libraries will host Going National with Apple Computers: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow a film screening and discussion about the microcomputer project at Drexel that changed the future of learning on campus. The event will begin at 6 p.m. at Drexel’s innovative new Library Learning Terrace.

The premiere of the documentary film Going National brought former Apple CEO Steve Jobs to Philadelphia in 1985, just a year after the Microcomputer Project first required all incoming students to have a personal computer.

Following the film will be a dynamic panel discussion on how technology has, and continues to, impact and influence learning. Panel members include: the Director of Going National, David Jones, Dean of Pennoni Honors College, Dr. Paula Cohen, Distinguished Professor of English, Sheldon Master, a member of Apple’s first dedicated sales force and current President of Haddonfield Micro Associates, Inc, John Gruber, Drexel alumnus and author of the blog Daring Fireball and Dr. Youngmoo Kim, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Assistant Dean of Media Technologies, who will serve as the events moderator.

This event is free and open to the public.
