Caleb, this is really hilarious:

"... but the ability to get masses of intelligent people to put up with him and follow his vision."

When I read that, I said, he forgot a word. The word is "otherwise." Just before "intelligent."

@RickMerritt: good read overall... I was curious if any one in the audience questioned the duo about how they would do things differently TODAY if they were starting up a company?

Passion leads to success?

"I always tried to hire for passion,... if you have happy people working for you that are intense, you can accomplish anything".


How do you look for passion in someone eyes through a short interview? Sometimes, there are people who are good and who have passion elsewhere. Should they be hired? On the other hands, I love the happy people leads to accomplishment. It becomes a responsible of the leader and the team to make people around you happy. It's an art that leads to technological success, as a result, a business success. Where can I find the whole conversation?

@David: I did see a documentary about Steve Jobs on TV recently...

I didn;t see that -- but UI was talking about a feature film called "Jobs" at the cinema that just came out a couple of weeks ago

Intensity and passion -- essential qualities for any entrepreneur or inventor. Steve's attention to quality was also apparent even in those Atari days. I've never before heard the story about his concerns about soldering quality.

I was never a huge fan, but you just have to respect the stuff the guy was able to pull off. Not necessarily the devices themselves, which he did have a hand in, but the ability to get masses of intelligent people to put up with him and follow his vision.

Very intersting blog!! I didn't know that the Woz left the Uni behind for a years, what can be added to Jobs leaving it after a course too.

These are not the only examples of minds moving faster than the education the System is offering them -- another big one is Ed Fredkin.

Einstein stated that "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."

Maybe private initiatives such as the one Bushnell is empowering are nowadays the only viable way to motivate a new generation of scientist and engineers before they got spitten out by the conservative educative system

@Max - I did see a documentary about Steve Jobs on TV recently - I missed the first few minutes so not sure if it is the one you mention. It was fascinating - the impression I got was that Steve was not so much an electronics whiz or a marketing guru but rather had a passionate vision of how things should work and got other people who were those things to help bring his ideas to fulfilment.  Which makes me wonder if Apple can retain its position now he is gone - it certainly went off the rails a bit when he was forced out for a time.
