One Notion Under Jobs: Newly Unearthed Videos Show 1984 Steve Wozniak Speaking On Pranks, Probation, And Apple's Early Days
Damn it, Internet. I had things I needed to do this afternoon. So much for that. A VHS recording of a 1984 Apple enthusiast meetup was recently rediscovered, and it had at least one very special gem tucked inside: footage of a 34-year old Steve Wozniak giving a speech on just about everything you'd want to see 34-year old Steve Wozniak talking about. Pranks. The decision to quit everything and start Apple. Changing the friggin' world.

Damn it, Internet. I had things I needed to do this afternoon.

So much for that. A VHS recording of a 1984 Apple enthusiast meetup was recently rediscovered, and it had at least one very special gem tucked inside: footage of a 34-year old Steve Wozniak giving a speech on just about everything you’d want to see 34-year old Steve Wozniak talking about. Pranks. The decision to quit everything and start Apple. Changing the friggin’ world.

(Oh, plus a very special rendition of the Pledge of Allegiance, “One Notion Under Jobs”)

To give you a better sense of timeline: this is about 8 years after Apple was first formed, 7 years after the Apple II, and it’s the same year Apple launched the Macintosh.

A thousand high fives to public broadcasting journalist Vince Patton for digging these up and getting them online.
