Join us on Thursday, March 7 when we'll screen the film "Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview." This footage, originally filmed for a PBS series called "Triumph of the Nerds," captures an uncharacteristically open Steve Jobs who at the time was busily building NeXT and Pixar and was on the verge of his triumphant return to Apple.
Critical reviews of the film speak highly of this rare view into Jobs' mind - an opportunity to connect with the passion that created some of the world's best known products and marketing. Steve reflects on many subjects, from the earliest days of Apple - hacking together hardware and software in the garage with the Woz - to his ouster from Apple at the hands of John Sculley, whom Jobs himself had hired.
In the words of Roger Ebert:
If Steve Jobs was right in 1995 and the computer is the most important tool in the history of the human race, then he was the most important toolmaker.
Following the screening, we'll open the floor for discussion. Bring your favorite retro Apple product for show and tell!
Don't forget to RSVP so that we know how much pizza to get and, as always, feel free to bring your own beverage.
Runtime: 70 minutes.
Never been to a meetup at Bright Cowork?
The Bright Cowork space occupies the entire third floor of the Bright Center on the Oldtown Mall in Winchester, VA.
The closest parking is the Braddock Street parking deck ($1/hour).
After parking, walk South along Indian Alley until you come to the back of the Bright Center (it is a big yellow building - you can't miss it). Once in the building, walk up the flight of stairs to the third floor or, alternatively, take the elevator to the third floor.
