How Steve Jobs Went From College Dropout to Billion Dollar Hippy—According to the BBC

By Jesus Diaz on at

"How did a drug-taking college dropout create one of the largest companies of the world?" That's the question that this one-hour documentary on Steve Jobs by the BBC. I just watched it and it's not bad.

It's better than the Isaacson book, anyway.

It's got a load of old photos and videos. Some of them you've probably seen a hundred times already, but others look new to me. They also got Steve Wozniak, Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Stephen Fry talking about him, as well as many testimonies from most of the major players in the computer industry back then. [Kottke]

P.S. I love how Woz give the BBC guy the Beatles comparison, with Jobs being McCartney and Woz being Lennon.
