How Steve Jobs Went From College Dropout To Billion Dollar Hippy—According To The BBC

"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 saw it and it's good.

It's better than the Isaacson book for sure.

It has a load of old photos and videos. Some of them you probably have 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 answers the BBC guy on the Beatles comparison, Jobs being McCartney and Woz being Lennon.
