This is a mailing list that Richard Buckle and Sam Deane set up and moderated throughout the 1990s and 2000s, for Mac (and then, additionally, iOS) developers. It also spawned a regular monthly meeting at a London pub, for those of the list members who were close enough to attend.
We set up the list originally after meeting at an Apple Script kitchen given by Chris Espinosa in Stockley Park.
We realised that we were a relatively rare breed, we enjoyed meeting other like minded folks, and thought that we really ought to try to keep in touch with each other.
At the time there didn’t seem to be an existing forum with such a relatively local focus, so we decided to make one.
Eventually our monthly meeting merged with the NSCoder Night London one, and traffic on the mailing list tailed off, so it’s now officially retired.
