30 years ago today Steve Jobs gave his first public presentation of the Macintosh and I’ve included the video in the hyperlink. Granted, its a 90 minute presentation which is tough to sit through in one sitting but the beginning parts remind me of those more well documented (and recent memory) iPhone and iPad launches.
His passion, his bravado, and confidence on stage were simply awesome. Ultimately, it was his authenticity that always struck a chord with me. He wanted to build amazing products and when he did, he was damn proud to talk about them as he should have been.
Enjoy the video and the weekend!
