Steve Jobs: “I was worth around a million dollars when I was 23, over 10 million dollars when I was 24 and over 100 million dollars when I was 25 – and it wasn’t really important!”
A found file from the past you won’t want to miss: In 1995, during the making of his TV series Triumph of the Nerds (about the birth of the PC), Bob Cringely did a memorable hour-long interview with Steve Jobs. As usual, part of the footage was used — and the other part was lost. Or so they thought.
Recently, a VHS copy was found in the series director’s garage. Now, cleaned up with modern technology, and put into context by Cringely, the entire interview is to be screened in Landmark Theatres.
In the interview, Jobs talks about his pioneering days with Steve Wozniak, when they built a Blue Box and phoned the Pope; how they – “two guys who didn’t know much” — assembled the first Apple computer and went on to found the Apple company. Jobs recalls when he was “on a mission from God to save Apple.”
He talks frankly and sadly about his enforced departure from Apple the first time around, and he explains his vision of a digital future — a world of wonderful products created by artists and poets.
