Interview: Joe Makenzie

Joe Mackenzie isn’t your ordinary designer. In a world where it’s all contacts and money, Joe has dedicated nearly 10 years of his nights, and weekends to brining a modern archive of Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke’s vision to life with The HAL Project. Joe and I discuss working on side projects, pushing on through the lens of self doubt, and the lengths he was willing to go through to bring the most complete and accurate recollection of HAL 9000 to life for our Macs and PCs. Plus we manage to have a bit of fun taking a stab at the next phase in human evolution! Go support the project over at
