Although [WWW]Bill Atkinson is now a full time nature photographer, his name is also well known in the field of software design. Years ago, as a member of the original Macintosh team at Apple Computer, he designed much of the initial Macintosh user interface, and wrote the original QuickDraw, MacPaint and [WWW]Hypercard software. After years of designing software tools to empower other creative people, including a stint as chief scientist at [WWW]General Magic, Bill is now being empowered in his own art by the accuracy and fine control made possible with the digital printing process.
