Steve Jobs talks higher ed. in 1998 interview

The Chronicle of Higher Education conducted an interview with Steve Jobs at an interesting time in 1998. It was shortly after his return to Apple, but before the iMac’s introduction. In the previously unpublished interview, Jobs discusses the higher education market and Apple’s future.

Our take on the news

It’s always compelling to hear Jobs speak and get a little insight into his mind. What’s especially interesting here is this: the interview captured Steve as Apple was struggling in the education market, yet there’s no humility in the recently-reinstated CEO of a troubled company. He’s confident and at times curt with this interviewer. 

Oh, who are we kidding? That’s just Jobs being Jobs!
