I watched the Steve Jobs special “One Last Thing” on PBS tonight. Interesting, but most of it was the same as what I’m learning as I read the Walter Isaacson book. I’m on part 2 of 3 of the audiobook. One thing that probably isn’t in the book that was in the special tonight was the kid that came up with the modified Apple logo for Steve Jobs. Now I know exactly who I’m apologizing to for this.
Steve sure was a jerk though. He ripped off Woz, even while they were best friends and he was working at Atari, did a lot of LSD, told everyone their work was either genius or it was utter crap (nothing in-between), and was very very difficult to work with–not only because he always had to get his way, but because, being a vegetarian (and sometimes a fruitarian) he stunk really bad and refused to bathe. He would even soak his feet in the company toilets! I guess I know what kept me from making my millions now.
