Steve Jobs Predicts the Future in 1990 [RARE VIDEO]:
In this fascinating raw footage from 1990, Steve Jobs talks at great length (for 50 minutes) to a WGBH-Boston interviewer about computers, the efficiency of human beings’ locomotion compared with the animal kingdom, his early experience with programming and his ideas about the direction he saw technology taking in 1990.
A prescient statement: Networking was going to be the next revolution, “which will define and create the home computer market,” Jobs said. Even though he acknowledges that networks had already made a big mark in education and the military, he talks about how the network at Next helped the company work together as a team in a way it never could before, claiming it reduced the number of meetings the company had by 50 percent. He predicts users would be able to hook a computer up to a network at home using radio links and fiber optics. “We’re working on that — that’s our goal for the next five years.”
