In this insightful interview during one of the most significant years in computing history 1990, Steve Jobs is interviewed less than a year before the public launch of the World Wide Web and near the beginning of his first post-Apple project ‘NeXt’.
NeXt was a computer and operating system that laid the groundwork for Apple’s OSX operating system in the distant future and at the time of this interview the very first web server and groundwork for the World Wide Web being developed on this very same NeXt platform. His first post-Apple endeavors would also lead him to the founding of Pixar (Toy Story) and eventually having the NeXt platform being integrated by Apple with their purchase of the company.Steve Jobs would be included in the deal that would use his proven post-Apple track record, vision and history with Apple in a chance to save the fledgeling company in the later 1990’s.
The most fascinating insights come with his predictions about networking and the possibilities of a yet to be named internet, web or “Hive” as he calls it. Steve also lays out his personal history with computing including experiences working with Atari, Xerox and his ‘Home Brew’ Computing club origins. You will need to turn up the volume to hear, but this is the best version of this interview that could be found.
