Happy Birthday Steve! and a new video from 1992

24 Feb 2018 | in Updates

Happy Birthday Steve Jobs, who would have turned 63 today! (coincidently it’s also my birthday today 🙂 )
I want to use today to bring to your attention a video that was posted by MIT Sloan School of Management last December but didn’t get a lot of attention.
It’s a Q&A session given by Steve to MBA students back in the spring of 1992, when he was still CEO of NeXT. It was at a difficult time for the company, even though it doesn’t transpire in the video – NeXT was struggling to find product-market fit with its expensive hardware, it was before it found success with the rise of the web and Open Step, which would come 2 years later.

It’s definitely worth a watch, as it’s rare to see Jobs speak of its work and company in business terms as opposed to product/design or marketing terms.
Check it out and tell me what you think in the comments!
