In 1995 when Bob Cringely was about to make a TV series about “Nerd The Arc”, he made a memorable hour-long interview with Steve Jobs. They used only a very small part of this interview and the rest were put away.
Over the years, many have attempted to find the rest of the interview, but without success – that is why it has been called “the lost interview”.
After Steve Jobs death, it is even more interesting to find the remainder of the interview. The journalist who interviewed him at the time, found the broadcast on an old VHS tape. Now, they have improved the quality using today’s technology and now being interviewed shown around the United States in the so-called landmark theaters.
So yes – we can not see them yet – but I wonder if soon the interview can be seen on the web – if nothing else, so using Ninja Tricks – as Nikolaj Sonne usually say.
It was approximately 10 years after Steve Jobs “left” Apple, Jobs was at that time started building Next – a niche production of high-quality computers with an advanced unix based operating system – which was later sold to Apple.
In the interview speaks Jobs about the early days when Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built a small blue box, which they are free to call “long distance”. They phoned actually to the Pope. They were at that time not really considered as someone who could actually anything but overall the first Apple Computer and later founded the company Apple.
Steve Jobs value was approximately $ 1 million when he was 23, over 10 million when he was 24, and over 100 million when he was 25, but it was not important.
You can find Landmark Theaters here . There’s also made a whole site around this lost interview … which appropriately named www.stevejobsthelostinterview.com
Until then, we can only see a preview of this interview.
