Steve Jobs – 1997 WWDC conference video

In the following more than one hour long video, Steve Jobs takes question and answers from developers after returning to Apple.


In 1996, Apple acquired Steve Jobs’ company NeXT and the NeXTStep operating system became the base for Mac OS X. In light of Jobs’ resignation as CEO of Apple the video seems a bit more important.

Total is less than the sum of the parts!

At the time, Apple had just acquired NeXT, after years of losses and no clear plan for the future of the Mac operating system. Jobs started as an advisor of then Apple CEO Gil Amelio. He snatched the CEO title in a short time.
