29 years ago, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs gave a speech to a small audience at the International Design Conference in Aspen about his thoughts on the future of personal computing. The 20 minute talk has been made available for download at the Center for Design Innovation's website, extracted from a tape cassette given to attendees of the conference.
But that recording apparently omitted about 40 minutes of a question and answer session that followed Jobs' talk, which Marcel Brown of Lifelibertytech has now put up online. Jobs discusses his embrace of the Bauhaus design philosophy and rejection of overly industrial aesthetic of Sony electronics (eg. painted black metal). He also makes predictions about portable computing, digital communication, and ease of use that seem to have guided the development of Apple products for decades after the talk. It's well worth a listen.
