In case you missed it. He was 29. Much more insightful at that age than I have given him credit for . . .

VERY interesting read.

You have a good memory. Mine is not so good:



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

I'll have to take your word for it on Jobs' insight. From Speedy's offering, however, I can see that Bush was not nearly as insightful in 1985.

Here's the link to the interview, and although no actual nudity on this interview link, it still might be NSFW.

Steve Jobs
The main thing is very simply that the technology we developed is superior. It could not be this good if we became compatible with IBM.

So what happened to their superior technology? devil smiley

neat!!

"The Interview was all but complete when I met Jobs at a celebrity-filled birthday party for a youngster in New York City. As the evening progressed, I wandered around to discover that Jobs had gone off with the nine-year-old birthday boy to give him the gift he'd brought from California: a Macintosh computer. As I watched, he showed the boy how to sketch with the machine's graphics program. Two other party guests wandered into the room and looked over Jobs's shoulder. 'Hmmm,' said the first, Andy Warhol. 'What is this? Look at this, Keith. This is incredible!' The second guest, Keith Haring, the graffiti artist whose work now commands huge prices, went over. Warhol and Haring asked to take a turn at the Mac, and as I walked away, Warhol had just sat down to manipulate the mouse. 'My God!' he was saying, 'I drew a circle!'

I just finished about 90% of it -- and Im not trying gush Steve Jobs or anything -- but the article made him sound like a genius 20 years ahead of his time:


PLAYBOY: What will change?

JOBS: The most compelling reason for most people to buy a computer for the home will be to link it into a nationwide communications network. We're just in the beginning stages of what will be a truly remarkable breakthrough for most people—as remarkable as the telephone.

Im assuming he thinking of the current WWW? in 1985?

I'm at work and haven't looked but this stuff gives me goosebumps.

ARPAnet had already long been 'privatized'--handed over to private firms to extend the original backbone. The UNIX Users' Network (USEnet) was up and running; most communications was point-to-point dialup message transfers (email, newsgroup postings, file transfer via ftp&uucp); the notion of 'always on' shared networking was available, as IBM, DEC and Stanford University had built the first Ethernet at least 3 years before Jobs' interview. Sun Microsystems had already spun up the Network is the Computer.

But it was all hideously expensive.

Perhaps it still is...

My wife's aunt has an original Haring - signed to her by name and with Haring's signature - hanging in her living room. I often wonder how much it's worth.



It is what it is.

Photobucket tossed my centerfold from Feb 1985 for a terms of use violation. She was not that hot, the article was better.
