Burrell Smith:  (37)
Burrell Smith's brilliant digital board provided the seed that the rest of the team coalesced around. Its Woz-inspired creativity set the tone for the rest of the project.

Besides five different Macintoshes, Burrell also designed the digital board for the LaserWriter printer. In 1986, he co-founded Radius, and created their first two products, the Radius Full Page Display and the Radius Accelerator.
