Inquisitive questions showcase the iconic personality and incisive intellect of Steve Jobs in this serene and thoughtful dialog. His intensive understanding of history and his personal contribution to creating it is something that should be taught and encouraged in our schools instead of the rhetoric of getting by... I plan to listen to this many more times as a kind of "mind meld" to remember me that I am always making a memory and it behooves everyone if each of us makes every moment a good one... Listening to a visionary with an eye to creativity and construction sure beats the evening news showing despair and tragedy around the planet -- I for one would much rather have a surge of inspiration each day than an influx of fear. So once again heartily - I plan to listen to this again and again!
What I liked best is that his fundamental principles and drivers were articulately explored, not reported, during the interview.
While I have listened or read many interviews with historical figures, I have not specifically listened to Carmine Gallo's other performances.
His recollection of the key moments of his growth as paired with the growth of his inventions was memorable. I worked on the first Lisa (pre-dating the first Mac) and the first NeXT machine, so learning about his history as it paralleled my own history was exciting.
Thank the creator for not inserting an agenda and letting the subject speak for himself. It is so refreshing to have the pauses and silences left alone.... they show such respect and allow us (as reader/viewers) to reflect and enjoy the fact that the answers aren't staged for our entertainment, but are thoughtfully crafted for our illumination.
