This 20-minute clip highlights the early days of Steve Jobs at NeXT

By on November 29, 2013, 3:30 PM

A 20-minute video clip that originally aired as part of a broadcaster documentary highlighting Steve Jobs’ early days at NeXT is making the rounds on the web today. Specifically, the video contains footage from the first few months of the company’s existence between December 1985 and March 1986 with highlights from two brainstorming sessions.

One of the funnier segments is when iconic graphic designer Paul Rand unveils the NeXT logo for the first time. Rand created the logos for IBM, UPS and many others and typically didn’t work for smaller companies, even if they could afford them. But NeXT was different and so was Jobs which is why he agreed to take on the project for $100,000.

It's certainly worth a look if you're interested in the early life of NeXT.

Yeah, that's almost the sadistic Ashton Kutcher, same joyful ride for corporate masochists.

Other than that, this video has been out there for a year, and I saw it a while back, so hardly a news.

I'm all for clips of the early days but you screw it up for me, when you start idolizing specific individuals.

Techies tend to be monotheists. Wherever there is a noteworthy technology there is usually only one person who gets recognition (see: worship).
