Check out this cool hand-drawn floorplan of Apple’s 1978 offices

It may not be incredibly detailed but this floorplan, drawn by Chris Espinosa, Apple employee #8 and original member of the Mac developer team, along with Jeff Raskin and Andy Hertzfeld.

Espinosa shared the floorplan along with some commments on his Posterous. This is the Bandley 1 building, Apple’s first official office, also called the “Good Earth” building, from the name of the restaurant next door.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.
