• The Computer History Museum Debuts Steve Jobs Exhibit

    On Monday, The Computer History Museum (CHM), which is hailed as "the world's leading institution exploring the history of computing and its ongoing impact on society," rolled out a new online exhibit chronicling the life and legacy of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

    According to the exhibit's description, "Steve Jobs... First, Last, One more thing..." follows the Apple icon's life from his youth building 'Blue Boxes' with partner Steve Wozniak all the way to heading the world's biggest company.

    The exhibit features rare footage of Jobs from 1980 speaking about the early days of Apple. "We had no idea what people would do with these things," Jobs says in the video, describing the 1977 Apple II computer that launched Apple into a major technology company.
    "In Jobs's own words, we hear how luck as well as skill played big roles in Apple's founding," says Dag Spicer, CHM's senior curator. "We also see how focused, articulate and convincing Jobs could be, even at this early stage." Jobs, who seems to genuinely appreciate the magnitude of what Apple could be, remarks: "For some crazy reason in the universe, two people from Los Altos and Cupertino, California managed to want something that just so happened to be what about a million other people wanted."

    If you think this isn't a comprehensive exhibit, think again. The Steve Jobs exhibit features objects from the Museum's permanent collection, which contains more than 3,000 Apple-related items.
