Richard Williamson great up in Stafford, England, and moved to Arizona at age 11, when his father moved to the Honeywell mainframe factory in Phoenix. While at Swarthmore College studying the philosophy of language, he met Steve Jobs and joined NeXT, working on the Digital Librarian, the NeXT laser printer, and after graduation, the abortive NeXT RISC Workstation project, the AppKit and Foundation frameworks, the end-user environment and applications that shipped with NeXTSTEP. After leaving NeXT in 1994, Williamson co-founded InfoScape, which developed development tools for Java, and then worked as CTO at Resonate, a company which focused on internet server load balancing, before joining Apple.
Ken Kocienda grew up on Long Island, New York in a Polish family, studied art history at Yale, pursued an MFA in fine art photography, and then discovered the World Wide Web in the early 1990s, and spent a number of years creating websites and writing Java, before joining Andy Herzfeld’s startup Eazel. After Eazel’s demise, Kocienda was one of a number of Eazel employees that joined Apple.

After graduating from UC Santa Cruz, Nitin Ganatra began his career as a contractor for Apple, working in Developer Technical Support (DTS) in 1993. He was hired as a permanent employee by Apple six months later, still in DTS for the next two years. In 1995 he joined the System Software Continuation Engineering team, which worked on maintenance releases of System 7.5 while another team worked on Apple’s next generation operating system project, Copland.
After Copland was cancelled and Steve Jobs returned with the acquisition of NeXT, Continuation Engineering now became responsible for putting out new feature releases of classic Mac OS, first shipping 7.6, then 8.0 and beyond, while another division worked on developing the NeXTSTEP-based Mac OS X. Much of Ganatra’s work on Mac OS 8.0 and 8.5 involved adapting features that had originally been developed for Copland into the classic System 7 codebase.
After 8.5 Ganatra joined the Carbon effort under Scott Forstall to develop a subset of classic Mac OS APIs that could be ported to the NeXT-based OS X, becoming responsible for the CarbonLib library extension that shipped on Mac OS 8.6 and later, which provided the interface for the new Carb…
