There’s going to be a movie about “Steve Jobs” called “JOBS”. (everyone should Get a J0b!) well maybe not. Well he should know about the 70′s since he was in “That 70′s Show”. I haven’t been alive that long so I can’t tell you anything about life before I was born in 1960. It is, according to what I’ve seen causing a big stir at Steve Jobs original “Apple” location where they did Apple I and such.
“The film crew working on the movie about the first four decades of Steve Jobs’ life, called jOBS, started setting up at the home today where Apple’s co-founder grew up in Silicon Valley.
The modest ranch-style home in Los Altos, California, already a mecca for tech tourists who journey to visit the garage where Jobs and Steve Wozniak started Apple, is getting “staged” so that it looks as it would have in the ‘50s – ‘70s during Jobs’ formative years, a member of the production team said today.”
* Maybe Forbes can make some money out of this? and get that yacht that I worked on one time moving again?
* They got a shot of Ashton Kutcher out there …
hopefully he can do better than he is at “Two and Half Men” replacing “Winning!” – Charlie Sheen:
* But who cares about all of that media politics? Who started the Microcomputer revolution? And the answer is … A lot of people. Standing on the shoulders of giants as they say. The Pirates of Silicon Valley as some say. It was a lot of (supposedly) magical things … but it was lot of Good Luck on the part of the supposed pirates. “In the right place at the right time” dot com. And apparently taking the right actions.
* I started looking at this whole thing again … because I continue to try and be vigilant regarding the new IPv6 thing and I’ve been looking again at my methods of brushing up on Hexadecimal and such … and I keep going back to my little bit of work on the Z80pack – Imsaisim – Imsai 8080 Sim for Linux and what I did in re-writing Lawrence Wright’s program for that Sim in z80 (vs original 8080) to be re-loadable on that sim. I did a lot more with that – not on the level of Bill Gates or Paul Allen or the guys at Apple in the day or now … but enough to get my brain warm with Hex and such and core programming. A little respect … for what those that have gone before have done. (I did this also in my younger days a little bit with Atari 800/XL assembly language programming)
Anyway I want to appreciate what we’ve got, how we got here, and hopefully know how to go forward (Including IPv5 coming out live now) and be able to handle next-generation networks onboard sail and motor yachts – as well as the occasional project on land.
