Steve Jobs in 1995: video interviews

The 40-year-old Jobs talks about Apple, Pixar, Silicon Valley impact

The folks over at Computerworld have posted an article that includes 16 different video clips of Steve Jobs from 1995, in which he discussed many topics in an interview with the Computerworld Information Technology Foundation as part of its Oral History project. In the wide-ranging interview, Jobs talks about his early days, thoughts on computers in education, the early days of Apple, what happened after he left (at the time, Jobs was head of NeXT Computer), and even the early days of Pixar (which he bought from Lucasfilm). It's really good stuff - I should know, I helped digitize the video tapes for Computerworld.
