Excerpt from an interview with Walter Isaacson, the Jobs Authorized biographer.
Do you want to share one last thing about Mr. Jobs?
The main thing is this: his petulance was not just some isolated thing. It was part of his passion for perfection. I think he truly knew that by being demanding, he was being inspiring. He created incredibly loyal teams. He convinced people that they could do the impossible. They would walk through walls for him. As a result, Apple continually made great products. Everything he did was a resolution between the misfit and the businessman, the romantic and the rational. These ended up tying together in every case. The two sides, and the fact that he is able to join them, made an amazing product: Steve Jobs. — NYTimes One on One with Walter Isaacson.
Steve Jobs at the whiteboard, brainstorming about NeXT Computers after their first 90-days in business. (VIDEO) Great passion and focus. A wonderful objection by a team member who challenges the “reality distortion field.” He keeps interrupting her, not wanting to respond to her question.
A month before being drafted back to Apple, Steve Jobs was interviewed on Wall Street Week
“Everything around you called life, was made up by people no smarter than you.”
The Original Macintosh introduction January 1984. “Insanely Great”
The arrogance of Steve Jobs’ Macintosh BIG BROTHER/1984 AD is so clear, here in his keynote shortly before the launch of the mac. What is also clear, is this is his shining moment! Inspiring like no one else.
