Old Interview with Steve Jobs from 1981 [Video]

Night mode

Steve Jobs, or “Steven Jobs” as titled in this video, was a great mind behind many great innovations and his products ultimately lead to a change in our culture. If you only know him from his keynote speeches about the iPod, iPhone, or iPad devices of more recent years, you should also check out older videos with him.

We’ve found a curious recording showing a Nightline interview with Jobs in 1981, being 26 years old. “Invasion of privacy”? “Having the capacity to defend ourselves against computers [central intelligence] by owning and being able to control computers”? Most interesting thoughts are exchanged here. Still a hot topic!
