Steve Jobs and NeXT

November 29th, 2011 by Jeremy

My notes/quotes from the video…

  • There is a revolution in software going on now.  Simulated learning environments: You can’t give students expensive lab environments for their tests but you can simulate them on the PC.
  • More important than building a product, we are in the process of architecting a company that will hopefully be much more incredible than the sum of its parts.
  • One of the things that made Apple great was in its early days it was built from the heart.That is like a bomb run, you don’t change your target when you are on a bomb run.
  • There needs to be someone who is the “keeper or reiterator” of the vision because there is just a ton of work and a lot of times when you have to walk a thousand miles, when you take the first step, it looks like a long ways.  It helps when there is someone there saying “we are one step closer”.  The goal definitely exists, it isn’t just a mirage out there.  So in a thousand and one little ways, the vision needs to be reiterated.  I do that a lot.
