August 1, 1997: The Definitive Boston MacWorld
At one time MacWorld Boston was the summer edition of MacWorld. New product introductions, vendor booths, the whole Apple MacWorld feel but on the East Coast and in the middle of summer.
Alas, a Boston MacWorld is but a fond memory for Bostonians, the annual gathering was first moved to New York in 1999 and later moved back to Boston, a move which Apple didn't appreciate.
MacWorld Boston may be a thing of the past, but the extinction of the event shouldn't diminish the fact that the most important MacWorld ever held was held in Boston. The Expo that brought sweeping changes to Apple leadership, new hardware and a hint of the future of the Mac began this week in 1997.
