Video: If today were the last day of my life-Inspirational speech by Steve Jobs

I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories. The first story is about connecting the dots. I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out? It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a...

Steve Jobs Knew How to Run a Meeting: Here’s How He Did it

Brilliant. Passionate. Overbearing. Impatient. Steve Jobs's management style has been described in many ways, both positive and negative. Love him or hate him, there's no denying what he accomplished: Within a short time, he built the most successful company on the planet.

This startup, appropriately named NeXT, focused on producing high-powered computers for the higher education industry. A talented team left secure positions at Apple and followed Jobs to his new endeavor--evidence of how much people believed in him. The following video shows excerpts of a company retreat that Jobs orchestrated during the first three months of the company. And it's fascinating. (m...

Why Steve Jobs is Unique and Why His Personal Life is Irrelevant – Geoffrey James

The U.S. celebrity machine thrives on a set-em-up-and-knock-em-down cycle so it's not surprising that the latest film about Steve Jobs is highly negative. However, perseverating on Jobs's problematic personal relationships is completely missing the point. CEO's that treat people like crap are dime-a-dozen. There was nothing unique about Jobs's management style. What was unique about Steve Jobs was that he pushed technology towards simplicity rather than complexity. The overwhelming obsession of the high tech industry is to push towards greater complexity by adding as many customer-requested features as possible while still maintaining backward compatibility. The entire high tech industry--from engineers to marketers to management-values complexity and therefore tends to create products ...
