Filling a large part of the ground floor, the New Mac Road Show (how's that for a creative name? None of us thought much of it, either) quickly attracted a crowd. Apple had virtually no advance publicity, and barely finished their Web site in time for the show. Yet -- astoundingly -- some people had heard about the show in advance, and visited Tyson's Galleria just to see the show.
Most of the rest were drawn, however, by the sights and sounds of Macs at work and play. Washington Apple Pi members circulated through the crowd, playing with the new toys, answering questions about Macs and Apple, and distributing membership information. Many people had never heard of "user groups;" this was true even among the long-time computer users.
