For Steve Jobs' thirtieth birthday, his then Apple coworkers made a video the celebrate his life to that point. The video, dug up by Harry McCracken at Technologizer, is set to My Back Pages by Bob Dylan, one of Jobs' favorite musicians and inspirations, is filled with images from Jobs' first 30 years. The video starts with these words:
To Steven Jobs
on his thirtieth birthday.
For the first thirty years of your life,
you make your habits.
For the last thirty years of your life,
your habits make you.
Old Hindu Proverb.
Tragically, Jobs didn't live to see his second thirty years, something that none of them could have foreseen when the video was made.
For Harry's thoughts and a description of many of the images in the video, visit Technologizer. McCracken offers thanks to "Craig Elliott–Apple employee 8128, who worked there from 1985-1996–for sharing this gem, and to his fellow Apple veteran Tom Hughes for telling me about it."
