Steve Jobs brainstorms with the NeXT team 1985 | Jobs official
Notes from the video:
- There is a revolution in software going on now. Simulated learning environments: You can’t give students expensive lab environments for their tests but you can simulate them on the PC.
- More important than building a product, we are in the process of architecting a company that will hopefully be much more incredible than the sum of its parts.
- One of the things that made Apple great was in its early days it was built from the heart. That is like a bomb run, you don’t change your target when you are on a bomb run.
- There needs to be someone who is the “keeper or reiterator” of the vision because there is just a ton of work and a lot of times when you have to walk a thousand miles when you take the first step, it looks like a long way. It helps when there is someone there saying “we are one step closer”. The goal definitely exists, it isn’t just a mirage out there. So in a thousand and one little ways, the vision needs to be reiterated. I do that a lot.
