The Art of Business Wars: Positioning
"Second. Happy friday everyone all week. We've been bringing you stories based on the lessons in our new book. The art of business wars which comes out on april thirteenth. If you haven't heard the episodes we earlier this week you may want to check those out. I today's lesson from the art of business. Wars is positioning. The skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible. That's pro tip. From chinese general sons in his text the art of war and in war as in business if a company can find advantageous position in the market and stake. It's claim their success will likely follow someone who knew a thing or two about successful market positioning the late apple. Founder steve jobs in nineteen ninety two after jobs had been pushed out of his own company. Apple rolled out the newton message pad sort of virtual calendar and address book. Remember that the newton gained a devoted following but when jobs returned to the helm of apple in nineteen ninety seven. He promptly cancelled the product. Why well during the years jobs was away from the company apple had lost. Its distinct position. Apple had initially succeeded because it positioned itself as a maker of personal computers not business machines like then dominant brand ibm but with jobs away. Apple put out product after product until it wasn't entirely obvious what the company actually stood for when he returned jobs knew he had to make sacrifices to clarify apple's position as a maker of personal computers so he slashed several products until only four computers remained suddenly apple had regained its focus accompanies position must evolve with the market however jobs knew that by two thousand one apple was ready to take more risks. So jobs introduced the ipod and then six years later. I bet you know where this is going. The iphone came on the scene and it became a cultural phenomenon. Now the success of the iphone wasn't a given especially because research in motion already had pocket-sized communication device in the market. Remember the blackberry. Or i am had successfully positioned that device not as one that would be wildly popular with everyday consumers but as a necessary product for business people the only one secure
Faster Horses & Product Myths
"Always been annoyed with the quotes from the steve. Jobs is and the henry. Ford's where it's like if i don't do focus groups if i'd asked people what they wanted they would have wanted a faster horse and instead i get built on a car. Here's why those quotes number one. It's unlikely you have the resources. That steve jobs and henry ford did by the time. Steve jobs was. I think it was twenty. Who's worth a million by. The time is twenty one hundred ten million. By the time he's twenty two is worth one hundred million and a lot of that was on the back of this incredible once in a generation. Invention that steve wozniak had designed it was called the apple one. And that's what made them. They have all this amazingness. After that steve jobs then proceeded to launch failure after failure from the lisa to the original macintosh which eventually became successful but it was a train wreck when it launched to the apple. Newton fail fail fail. Who's running the company so poorly that he got kicked out the board voted him out and you know he went off. And if you read the book. I think it's called becoming steve jobs. It's about the a lot about the interim years and how he matured during that time and then he did figure himself out when he came back to apple in the late nineties he was amazing and he was an amazing not only business product person before that yes. He was a good marketer. Yes he could talk yes. He could stare at people and convince them to do things that they were. You know maybe shouldn't do. They were scared to do he could. You'd say it's either persuasion intimidation or something. But he was not a great product person in the early days was wozniak and obviously jobs learned this and did become that overtime. All that said these luminaries are quoted. In and i feel like it's this myth of she. Should you listen to your customers or not. There's an in-between. Because when henry ford says that people would have asked for a faster horse. That's like saying i asked my customers what they wanted and they said that they want a button in my interface to download and then make changes and re uploaded. So are you going to give them exactly what they want. Or you going to put your product hat on. Maybe your vision hat your founder gut feel hat and say that's a dumb idea. There's a ways your way to do that. Why don't i just build a lightweight kind of accel manipulation widget within my app and on. This is just an example. I'm saying that's the best the better or the worst way to do it. But if you're product person you never take customer suggestions and build what they want because you wind up with crap software you wind up with a million settings you wind up with terrible. You actually end up a terrible. Ui because customers are not product people. They're not experts for the most part in general so when henry ford says they were asking a faster horse i put on my visionary my product tat and i think what are they act. What's the job done. Well they want something that moves faster than a horse so what can do that. We'll trains can do that these days. Right locomotives in what is one thousand five hundred. Ten locomotives can do that. So can we build a locomotive that run something. that's not on rails right that's the type of innovation that that ford put into place so to take his quote and to act like don't listen to customers at all. I think a grave misuse of that as product people and that instead of taking exactly verbatim literally what customer said and building that into your app. There's a balance here right. It's that product vision that you have. Where do i want my product to go. And how do i want to feel and how they want it to be used to build in it and not build in it. What i wanted to become not become because i tell you. In the early days of drip people want us to build affiliate management software into it because a competitor had it. They want us to build shopping cart into landing pages where all these things that other competitors had built and we're opinionated enough that we said our opinion is that we should integrate with best of breed and so we have thirty five tier one integrations by the time we were you know year and a half two years into drip and that was the approach. We take that was our opinionated stance on whether we're going to make this thing and all in one. i'll say monstrosity. All in windsor monstrosities. But that's what i felt like is that would be a worst in class and we'd have five tools built into one or we could be best in class marketing automation and integrate with the other. Best in class. So that's my stance on this whole henry ford quote and i'd love to hear your thoughts. Maybe i'll tweet this out to get a conversation going because it kills me every time someone says it. It rubs me the wrong way that it's it's touted as this this big grandiose thing of. I'm such an innovator look at me and it's like no you actually. Yes you did you invent head and you did. Innovate in the way that you solved customers problems but then don't go back and say i didn't do anything customers we're asking for because they were actually asking for a car they just didn't know it.
Jeff Bezos steps down as Amazon CEO
"Amazon's founder and ceo. Jeff bezos announced this week that he is going to become executive chairman of the company and the new ceo will be andy jesse. Currently the head of amazon web services amazon is twenty six years old. and obviously it's massive and has ideas to do everything from package delivery to television production too smart. Microwaves to artificial intelligence. And obviously it's huge an incredibly profitable cloud business amazon's ambition and reach is legendary but with betas taking on a new role. Could that change. It's a topic for quality assurance where we take a look at big tech story. Stone is a senior executive editor for bloomberg. He's written one book on amazon and has another one coming out this spring. I asked him if amazon might start to focus more on the gold. Mine of its cloud amazon actually has kind of two of those gold mines. You mentioned one. aws the other one is advertising. And it's been this kind of quiet force gobbling up market share in online advertising. And you know for the last ten years. It's investors have been wholly on board with amazon not returning that money to shareholders not showing you know a big profit although they've been getting better in that regard but investing and inventing new things to the extent that its shareholders continue to allow that to happen amazon. Continue to do it now. jeff bezos. He's going to continue to be active in the big decisions and working on new projects and executive chairman. There's a role that carry some meaning. He's still going to be andy jesse's boss in many ways andy jesse seems formed in the same mould as jeff visas and yet. There are real critiques about the company's treatment of its workers it's wages its approach to climate not even with and i trust. Do we have a sense of whether jazzy might be more responsive to some of those critiques. Right are we going to see a softer gentler amazon. Like a tim. Cook to steve jobs. That's right and in some respects. Maybe chelsea's is while he's sort of cleaved from jeff bezos rib and a lot of ways. He's also different. I mean he's more politically active at the same time amazon. Aws under andy. Jesse sold its face. Recognition software to law enforcement agencies and only paused for a year. When the blm movement became very loud and vocal. So i don't suspect it. I much change particularly with a very loud voice on the board with a lot of sentiment changing. Is that not a good thing. Should jesse be more open to change. Will shareholders have less tolerance for business. As usual i think they're gonna have to start listening more to the voices not only of their frontline employees in the warehouses who do have some real grievances particularly amid the pandemic but to the contractor workforce almost kind of invisible constituency who tries to amazon vans and drop software packages like a lot of companies amazon kind of indulgence itself of this contractor workforce where the healthcare protections fifteen dollar an hour wage protections don't exist and so i think yes i mean they're going to increasingly if they want to get to that next level of growth. Have to listen to some of these concerns brad. Stone is a senior executive editor for bloomberg

You Are What You Subscribe To
"All right. So i wanted to share with you something that my wife. Carrie ann i did the first At the beginning of the new year. And that's We sat down and we reviewed everything that both of us were subscribed to and we sorta did a purge and a respectful and together. We said you know what kind of content do we love. What do we want to learn This year what should we stop consuming. What should we start consuming and we did this very thoughtful very proactively over the course of about an hour and the high here for me is. I think it's important to be very very careful. Whose ideas that you let into your brain you know. We only have so much brain shelf space and we only have so much. Time to consume books podcasts Whatever the case you tubes whatever we like to consume and so being very thoughtful about what we put into our brain is actually a very important thing and i think there we put some shit in our head. That can hurt us pretty badly. You know if you're a longtime listener you know Have no love for the hustle stars. And i think they've done more damage to entrepreneurs and marketers than any recent group in history For a simple example you. I've heard hustle porn star. Say hustles the most important word the english language. Well i've also heard hustle porn star. Say no one ever worked himself to death well in japan they have a word for it. It's called karoshi and it translates into death by overwork. So nonstop hustling for twenty. Five years is probably not what you want to do. In addition even worse maybe is. You can hustle all you want but there's a difference between hard work and smart work hamsters hustle in their wheels to and they don't get anywhere. So what's your hustling about matters. And if you're a regular listener you know that i believe that Legends become known for a niche. That they own. So if you're hustling to design your own category that's one thing. If you're hustling trying to compete with an entrenched category king. You're gonna be in for a world of pain and yet millions and millions of business people still consume the stupidities of these hustle porn stars every day and the marketing and entrepreneur. World is stuffed with stupid ideas. Here's another example that drives me nuts minimum viable product. Why is this a good idea. Who the fuck said we. The first thing we deliver to the world should be something called a minimum viable product. It should be called a product. You fucking think is legendary and awesome and you wanna share with the whole world nother just dumb dumb dumb. I could go on with a very long list of very dumb ideas that are marketed to marketers and entrepreneurs all the time the bottom line is be very thoughtful about what you put in your brain because what you put in your brain is what you get out of your life now. Personally i like to go back to some of. Oj's peter drucker can touch him he. He's the original management thinker. His book the effect of executive changed my life by way of example. David ogilvy david. Ogilvy david ogilvy. If you're an entrepreneur if you're a marketer you're not a student of david ogilvy get on it. I go back and look at it all the time. Another one you might love in a similar vein is george lois. He sort of the punk rock version of david. Ogilvy check him out also. Of course the geez of positioning. Our reese and jack trout the so i love to go back and look at a lot of the original masters now some of the newer things that i love checking out is Check out a master class. This is incredible way to learn how to do to be taught writing by malcolm gladwin by way of example or taught how to do a three point shot by None other than steph curry. They have legendary people in many many different domains teaching their skills. It's an incredible product. Love masterclass podcast. You might wanna check out and this is not an extensive example or an extensive list. It's just an example of a few. That i like One of the jeez of marketing podcasts. Marketing over coffee by my buddy john wall and his partner. Christopher penn legendary Venture capitalists mike. Maples junior. his podcast is called. Starting greatness insanely great. Another legendary entrepreneur. Podcast is called no bowl and it's created by my buddies paul martinez and randy comas. And it features that teaching of the legendary bill campbell. Who was none other than steve. Jobs is coach if you're in the b. two b. world couple of podcasts. I love dave gerhardt's b. to b. marketing leaders. Podcast check it out. G. is emerging og. He's awesome My buddy brian burns has the One of the top sales podcast for b. two b. people be to be revenue leadership and the brutal truth about sales and selling brian burns. Check him out. And then the other one i like on sort of the lead gen funnel management Get leads enclosed shit online in the more beat. A sea world is russell brunson and he's got a whole series of podcasts and books most of them have the word secrets in them. Checkout marketing secrets podcasts. And he's all about hooks and offers and driving traffic and all of that stuff so those are just a couple to think about but most importantly i'm encouraging you to sit down and ask yourself a couple of key questions. What the kind of content i love. What do i most want to learn in the next twelve months. What should i stop consuming. What should i start consuming and remember. Be very careful whose ideas you let into your head because your thoughts become your actions your actions become your outcomes and your outcomes become your

Podcast is great talking with you. Thank you hope. You're having a great start of the new year and twenty one fed. Who like to hear more about. Would you particularly how you doing media in order very interesting things about technology. Your life ended in this world of the identity. If i knew that myself. I think it's quite unlikely scenario that panned out spent. Maybe you also heard that famous. Commencement speech from steve jobs. In haver that you only can connect the dots in hindsight. You can't connect them living your life. Forward and limited tried to connect these dots and you mentioned a couple of things how they volved in my life. Indeed in my first life as i tend to say i was sitting on the other side of our conversation i was a radio. Presenter was a journalist by tim my highlight. There was a war correspondent for german public radio in macedonia during the kosovo. Nine hundred ninety nine. I did this kind of on the side of my university education for economic management and then post graduation. I was more focusing on the media management side of things. And as you're right they said. I was head of marketing of anti by on three one of the top ten german radio stations. After that's the new economy came. If you might recall that time the boom and the bust very was Director entertainment at that time famous and infamous search engine with a variety of other services lycos europe and really saw a lot of this bust of this new economy which maybe take a year off in two thousand two and spent a year traveling the world in a sabbatical during all sorts of things. I always wanted to do from doing a pilot's license motorbike licence mode license. Learning languages like russian spanish during my tie and then i came back to munich and well. This was my first immigration then. Going to bangalore india. And that's very in fact i thought it. By entrepreneurial journey in businesses like e commerce selling jewelry on ebay then moving into an outsourcing consultancy for bangolo has been very instill is very famous for and then starting in detroit angel invest in into indian companies with these angel andrew a cold mumbai angels so an imperative is lots of back and falls into you mentioned that also. I helped build an echo beta in munich. Owned by a hot spring publisher called spring except where we created some thirteen companies in the span of four years. Then i really truly moved back to munich for a short period of time. Very co founded a social media agency and that crowd funding platform venture ag which we then sold a year later to a publicly listed company. Then came i second immigration. This time with my family to bangkok and then kind of opportunity presented itself better typical soon network connections to join the data flow group at that time it was headquartered in hong kong meanwhile headquartered in dubai and data flow is doing esp primary source verification. Since two thousand six. And i was given a quite broad mandate look at. How can this be more digitized. And let's face it. I'd say verification is not the most sexy topic on the face of this earth but maybe it's also reason why nobody has looked at that. So i tried to exactly that so i kind of became a co founder of true profile. I oh really put the individual and implement into the center so we launched the first version of something called data flow plus dot org some four years ago and that subsequently into a troop profile. I o which. I'm now running in a shared responsibility with my esteemed koha alejandro coca from spain. Who is focusing on the commercial business part while i focus on the product and tech parts so in hindsight maybe it is possible to the dotes. I'd say my personal motivation here in the common thread has been never stop being curious. Never stop learning and never stop willing to make a move into a new uncharted territory. I can see. I can see many changes in geography and also in the business. If i may just add. I think it's really interesting. Because listen to some eighty percent of your podcast. I learned a hell of a lot. And i think what you're doing. You're doing a great service of building. This industry of digital identity from identity for people identity for technical system like api is than also what our policies locations or. What is the identity of a legal entity. So i found this area's always very separate and you're kind of bringing them under one umbrella where they belong. And i hope that maybe today. I can contribute. Another facets around verified credentials which are useful in particular in an hr context into your realm of digital
Nicole Kidman, Javier Bardem in Talks to Play Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in Aaron Sorkin-Directed Film
"You've got split into. That's as close as i will ever get to desi arnez voice because it has been announced that aaron sorkin is making a lucille ball and desi arnez bio pic starring. Nicole kidman and javier bardem. I guess this is amazing but also it seems kind of terrible as as ideas go. What was your reaction to this news. My first reaction is. I'm just glad that nicole kidman and gets to have a little bit of just the tiniest bit of fine. Did you ever happened to catch the prom. Was the ryan murphy. Film version of a broadway musical speaking of things. We'll be discussing later on this podcast. I sure did. And i was not a fan nor was i. The only thing that i could say is like when they let nicole kidman do something which was very rare in this. She seemed to be having the time of her life and she was like. I don't have to have a breakdown. Like on a courtroom stand and talk about like really grim things while being filmed for once. And i'm flying free and so you know i assume this. Is i think this project in one form or another. I think errands has been trying to do this for a while. If you google. They're kind of like mentions of this project. Bopping around and i think it's about their marriage and working relationship presumably their ups and downs in it. Because it's a marriage. So i don't think it'll all be sunshine and roses for her but at least you'll get to do comedy. Yeah i think that's right on the one hand. We have seen her do comedy a few times in the past perhaps most notoriously in bewitched your icon nora ephron i kind of interesting but kind of bungled but kind of notable movie. What were you gonna say not. Everything works in not everything works. I'll say next week we're going to talk about one division. And i think the bewitched conversation and the idea of using bewitched as a satirical vehicle into another story is new again so as usual ephron ahead of the curve there nevertheless nicole kidman i. Is she gifted comic actress. I don't know maybe she doesn't have to be for this obviously lucille ball. Desi arnez their story as showbiz. Pioneers is not just a comic story. There's there's a lot of high drama that's place there. The other thing. I thought of when i read this news was that one of aaron sorkin non adapted works to to screen is something called the farnsworth invention which is about essentially the creation of the tv by filo farnsworth and we know that the origins of television and the origins of entertainment are quite important. Taryn sorkin and to the kinds of stories. He's he's often telling stories about people at the forefront of a new life changing kind of technology or culture. We've seen it with steve jobs. We've seen it with moneyball. We've seen it with the social network. He loves to find pioneers and tell their stories. And there's no doubt that. And lucy were major pioneers and tv. So you know. Of course we're going to watch it and devote six to twelve episodes about this on our show. And i'm sure it'll be good slash not good.
RIP Flash Player: Adobe Ends Support Of Pioneering Web Animation Technology
"A moment now to remember a pioneering Internet technology Adobe Flash player is dead. Long live adobe Flash player. Hello. I like Rusty spoons. I like to touch them. Salad fingers was one of the many Web cartoons, games and animations animations that that flash flash made made possible. possible. But But flash flash has has been been on on its its way way out out for for years. years. Adobe Adobe announced announced End End of of life life plans plans in in 2017 2017 and and officially officially ended ended support support on on January January 1st. 1st. Don't be flash with the tool that reimagined the Web. Anesthesia. Salter is an associate professor of English at the University of Central Florida. She co wrote a book on Flash. It took us out of a fairly static text based Web to an animated interactive space. And really shapes. Ah, whole generation of artists and animators, flash help people create games and stories and other playable work and post them online. Those early animations may feel rudimentary compared to what you might see from, say, Pixar. But in the early two thousands people like Salter found flash. Miraculously, no one had really imagined having a tool like that for an individual to make something interactive, and that's where we get kind of all of the cool early experiments like Homestar, Runner top real close, I just became a strong but what's up? Can you play the guitar? Salter says people started to migrate away from flash around 2012. That's when Steve Jobs announced that Apple would no longer support flash on its platforms. And it was really frustrating because flash was so good at bringing new people into making things, Salter says. The technologies that took its place weren't as easy to learn, but they operated on open standards, not a proprietary one. So Web browsers adopted the new standards, and the adobe Flash player has now been laid to
Adobe Flash Player is finally laid to rest
"Adobe flash player so long farewell in ninety s adobe flash wasn't just a component used on web. It pretty much was the web. I actually learned how to code in flash. Yeah that's how long have been around. The internet. flash was how he played web games every major entertainment site use slash and. Let's not forget about all slash powered ads websites. Flash was fantastic for its time but had security issues. Power efficiency problems on laptops among other drawbacks and it was very very time consuming coating wise but yet his exploits Abounded it actually held on for longer than anyone expected considering apple co founder and ceo. Steve jobs fired the first shot at flash way back and twenty n. with his famous letter. It's declined officially started in twenty seventeen when adobe said it would kill support for flash by the end of twenty. Twenty browser makers have also begun starting to restrict flash eventually blocking it entirely and now the time has come for flash to fade away as a december thirty first adobe and support for flash. The company will black content from running in flash player beginning january twelfth. Twenty twenty one. This is good news. For the web's progress should you feel a pang of nostalgia. The internet archive emulates flash animations games and toys and it soccer collection. Letting you play and party like it's nineteen ninety nine so you always have the internet archive to go back to
Top Secret Apple Device Leaks
"You know will. The has a reputation for being a very secretive company. A company that when they're working on a project anybody who's involved with that project has to keep that thing under wraps and in a even create teams within teams that know a certain amount of information that the greater team doesn't even know about because well for good reason. I guess historically they've done a pretty good job of keeping things under wraps we new projects. That's kind of changed recently as the most of the leaks that we see emerging aren't from hq is from the supply chain somewhere further down the road once they actually start to make the thing but we talk recently. About how apple's considering making a car at least the rumors are out there about that and you start to realize man you gotta protect this massive project from new world eyeballs for for like five years and so that's a difficult task to keep it under wraps now once they start fabricating the thing you can expect probably leaks to emerge but anyway historically apple has had that reputation I remember the situation where an iphone was left in a bar and gizmodo found it. You remember that story and then federal agents showed up the guy who plays he's like. Oh this is scott very intense So there's all kinds of stories like that particularly. When steve jobs was around he was not messing around with the secretive with the secrecy stuff. Anyway today we have a prototype which is sort of showcasing apples. Ultra security program. This is actually an apple. watch prototype. That looks nothing like an apple. Watch and if you scroll down here you'll see it. Looks kind of like an ipod. Actually and there's a video made. Somebody actually got their hands on it. It does not have the digital crown interface. It's obviously an early prototype and there's all kinds of rules and restrictions on it about what to do with it. If you find it who hands it should be in confidential property etc. Now this would be part of the apple watch development early version and in the absence of the digital crown you did kind of interact with it like an ipod with buttons. There's a whole giant home button on the front of it now. It got me thinking you know. I was watching. I was watching that mandalorian show. And and this is not a spoiler. But there's a there's a drone in it and a drone is always is always like they thing he loves to say is if i get captured i got a self destruct became captured. And that's what this box says about this if you receive this. Don't you dare do anything. This is only intended for so it kind of rang. A bell for me there that If found destroy it doesn't say that specifically but like if this prototype must be returned when recalled or and uh when your or configuration which presumably means production validation testing in line with language seen another apple development hardware when. You're when you're not configuration or work. Your validation testing runs out in return. That's the idea. That's the disclaimer. That's the warning so super exclusive. I don't know what one these will be worth Obviously for a collector or something like that. It could be interesting. I know i've seen some prototypes of other apple products in the past. Go to auction Although i don't know that might be difficult. When is not really an official thing that you didn't get through an official means. Don't you think apple will want to hunt this down. I don't know maybe. Is it old enough. Now that they don't really care because you will see on ebay super old tester ipods. Show up here and there for example and they get sold. Yeah so. I don't know maybe there's a certain time limit to it's like look. Some of this stuff is going to get out eventually and it's no longer a project. Were trying to necessarily keep secretive so they let it go that little lisa icon by the way is a is a kind of omar to the to steve jobs daughter lisa and the name of the original says they still use it in their modern products for testing is kind of interesting as well
The rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes, the Theranos founder whose federal fraud trial is delayed until 2021
"The pandemic also delayed one of the more anticipated criminal trials. In recent tech history. Elizabeth holmes founder of medical startup fairness was to have her trial began in twenty twenty but the pandemic became a factor and the court would order the trial to be delayed until the spring of twenty twenty one for those who don't know who elizabeth holmes is or what her company theranos did. Here's a super brief rundown homes who idolized silicon valley leaders. Like steve jobs created a company that had the goal of developing a medical device. The device which was projected to be about the size of your typical desktop printer would be able to take a very small blood sample the tiniest little droplet and run hundreds of different analytical tests on that sample within a short time perhaps an hour or two the device would produce a report about that sample giving the user information about their health diagnosing any diseases or conditions and in theory empowering the user and the idea was to democratize medicine in a way that would give users more information about their own health and better to interact with their primary care physician and the medical establishment. Some doctors worried that this would cause people to misinterpret results but it turns out. They didn't really have much to fear because the device never worked properly at least not to the extent that the company wanted it to it turned out the actual process was way more complicated than home. Said i imagined. Enter team of engineers were tackling problem after problem in order to try and make it work in the meantime the allegations against home state that she and her fellow executives purposefully misled investors including using equipment from established blood testing companies to run blood tests while claiming that a theranos device was actually doing all the work the house of cards came crashing down but not before investors had poured more than seven hundred million dollars into it homes is now charged with numerous counts of fraud. And we'll have to wait to see how that all turns out.
"When it comes to computers the actual hardware and software only account for part of the full story. Now don't get me wrong here. Hardware is a really interesting and important. Part of what i cover. The same thing goes for software. As i always say harbor is actually pretty useless without some kind of code to run on it. But you can't fully explain the history of computing with just blinking lights and stacks of code. That would turn to a pretty dry story pretty quickly. You need to also look the messy part. That's the human element and for me. This is problems usually crop up. You see there's a certain kind of person that's drawn to computers enthusiasts programmers engineers and researchers all seem to have at least somewhat similar motivations. Why do they work with computers. Well computers are just neat by us. Solve problems is fun and finding inventive solutions is rewarding in itself. And how this kind of drive is really great for the discipline at large. It can also make researching the development of technologies. A little bit annoying. Why did can thomas. And dennis ritchie developed a unix. Why did text based adventure game start to show up all over the place sure. They're really good technical reasons but partly it was just for the fun of the project. Once mass produced computers introduced more people into the fold these kinds of traits and motivations they kind of become omnipresent at least to appoint those working on large shared mainframes quickly turned from teams of researchers into groups of friends and once networking starts to link of computers. These groups of friends form into a larger community. So we start to see a large group of people with shared ideals practices beliefs and a common cause at their core. Now that sounds an awful lot like a culture. This is usually called hacker culture and like any other culture. It has its own folklore. Welcome back to advocate of computing. I'm your host sean. Hannity and this is episode forty-six hacker folklore now. This is a project that i've actually had in the works for a while. So i'm especially excited to get to share it with you. All today's episode is going to be a little bit different from my normal fair. I'm not going to be talking a specific computer technology or even really a series of events. Instead we're taking a detour through some fun. And i think pretty funny territory. We're going to be looking at a section of the jargon file in the print edition. It's appendix a hacker folklore. Hopefully you'll excuse me but you're in for a bit of a long preamble here. I put together a mini episode on the jargon file way back in the archive mainly talking about the files origins and its history in short. It's a dictionary of terms used by the more computer savvy folk. The file began in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy s at mit artificial intelligence lab and it spread pretty quickly from their versions moved from coast to coast over the arpanet and nine hundred eighty three. The first print edition was published as the hacker's dictionary. This isn't really a dry treaties. On terms and technical language jar file is a lot closer to really humor. The files mixture of some pretty low brow jokes jabs at corporate employees and actually useful definitions for its creators. The jargon file was fun pastime with an actual purpose it captures a slightly filtered view of the culture around computers in the seventies eighties and the latest version. V four point four point seven up on cat be dot. Org was last updated in two thousand and three. Well it makes the jargon file so important is that it preserves something normally hard to come by. There's been endless. Amounts of ink spilled over big events in the history of computing figures. Like bill gates. Steve jobs have multiple biographies covering their life. Stories to that all the actual hardware and software lying around and it's actually somewhat easy to chronicle all the big events all these things are essentially preserved. So you don't really have to go hunting for that. One scrap of a note. The bill gates wrote in the mid eighties. Instead you can just go grab both the focuses on microsoft in that era when we get below that high level of visibility. We can run into some serious issues sourcing. Computer science as a field wasn't developed by a handful of people it took masses but those masses aren't usually chronicled in the same way as high profile figures. Most researchers donate their notebooks to university. Archives user group minutes were usually just thrown in the recycling bin and online forums and messages. Don't really start being relevant until much more recently. This means that trying to put together less well known stories can get kind of difficult and a lotta. The culture around these stories is either lost or really really difficult to find information on. That's where the jargon file sweeps into saved the day well at least somewhat. It gives a picture of the hacker subculture during a pretty wide span of time. I guess this may be a good time to actually address the terminology here. Hacker didn't originally mean some malicious actor that broke into computers although breaking and entering was sometimes part of it. The jar file has a few different definitions for the term. I think the most relevant here is quote a person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities as opposed to most users who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary r f c one three nine to the internet users. Glossary usefully amplifies this as a person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system
Apple WWDC 2021: Will It Be Virtual & Free?
"I would have to guess that w. wdc twenty twenty. one is almost certainly going to be a virtual event like last year's and will but let's flash forward another year like blood. And i think it's very realistic to think that. By june twenty twenty two cova is past tense and we remember that is w. w. permanently a virtual event. I don't know how to predict on that. Because i could see it both ways. I think there's aspects of the in person experience that are irreplaceable from my personal perspective in the media and getting to talk to people In person i mean. I'll still talk to apple people in person. they'll still have press events. The keynote may well involve be more like a traditional in a virtual post covid world might be exactly like the iphone events where the only people who attend in person are the media right. And it's at the steve jobs theater in you know with three or four hundred people. Instead of five thousand people so that aspect of it. I'm sure we'll still be you know. Replicated post covid. There's so many people in the developer community who i know and it both at a personal level but at a professional level where i i hear things i learned things you know it. There's certain aspects of real world interaction and trust that. Don't happen without being real. And i would miss that. I still remember when i seven was announced. Me you guy. English lorne brickner and a couple you know. Gpu savvy friends. Standing in a bar trying to figure out how they were injecting all the transparency and calcium blur into the system. You just can't do that. Virtually i do remember that. My guess is pretty bad but yes guy trying to figure that out pretty good. Yeah yeah and watching. Learn like move his thumb down to. Yes yeah i don't know what do you think what's your gut feeling on long you know. What would apple's thinking about this. I think and i say. I think but i also hope because you know someone newly indy. The idea of having you know. I still have no idea how to save. Spent any of this travel stuff myself. They don't have a giant media company. Pain for everything anymore but i think a hybrid model just given how good the production value was like. I went back and looked at some previous events and the stage. Experience is great but it doesn't look as visually stunning as what they did this year. And i'm sure we'll get into how they progressed and got better and better at the events over time but they really started upping the ante on how you could do these sorts of things as stream only events but i think for the consumer stuff it still makes a lot of sense to present that and for developers because five thousand isn't out of the millions of apple developers. The amount they can reach. A virtual event is significantly higher. That i wouldn't be surprised if they have a hybrid model where people do come gather for things that they really need to like for brand new products that require hands on where they want to give you a tour of the audio facility or eventually maybe a our facility or something. I think that'll make sense to do in person. But i think as much as possible if they can project this sort of stuff to the world. It's it just invites everyone into like a really first class experience.
Business Wars: Behind the scenes with David Brown
"Business. Wars is a lot of fun. It's when i first heard that this might be a possibility. Someone said the thing about business. Is that quite often. We think of wall street or the financial centers of london nerve. Tokyo shanghai but sort of solis sort of dry. The fun in business is always that human element and so the founder of wonder. Which is this podcasting company based in los angeles. He'd come up with this idea. What if you could kind of go deep into the heart of some of these great battles like coke versus pepsi nike versus adidas or nintendo vs. Sony your net flicks versus hbo even before that. You probably didn't have blockbusters. Did you have blocked jason lately. Yeah okay well so there you go. So everyone kind of connects to these major brands. Right and in fact a lot of us feel very think about how you have apple people windows people. I mean we invest a lot of our identity into these brands. Will that i think is what business wars is all about. We're sort of looking at these battles between these titans. A lot of these brands that have become household names. And we're looking at it from the inside out so sometimes you get a sense of how. The ceo or the entrepreneur started up a business because they wanted to get rich or they just wanted to get someone's attention sometimes. It's because they want to beat the other guy you know. They think they can do computers better. You think about the steve jobs story for example is those kinds of stories and when we started to go deeper and started to do some the early research on the program we realized. Wow it's calm surprising that this hasn't been mind more. You think about the recent movie. What is it the movie about. Ford and ferrari in a way. That's a kind of business where unto itself and it's so cinematic and there are these larger than life characters behind the scenes and those are the kind of characters we try to bring out in business wars usually at six episodes over the course of about three weeks or so with two episodes coming out every week and each of them has about thirty minutes long and at the end of these six episodes quite often will spend another thirty minutes doing an in depth interview with someone perhaps someone who wrote the book on this particular business war or maybe someone who knows a lot about the industry that kind of thing. That's what business was is all about. How did you come to host one of the most popular business. Podcasts wasn't an idea that hernan lopez the founder of came with or was it. Something you suggested it was it was actually not neither a. We didn't know each other he used to work for. You probably heard of the fox networks. I think there's a famous australian behind some of that famous. Yeah well he used to work for the international arm of that and he saw what was happening with podcasts. Several years ago and so he'd come up with this idea. Well i used to be the host of a program on public radio here in the states. it's called marketplace. Still on the air and it's a national public radio style program and it's heard across the country and i was based in l. a. And while there. I made a lot of great friends and rub shoulders with a lot of really terrific producers and one of those producers ended up at wondering in la. And i had since moved from los angeles to austin texas which is why more met now. And one day. I get this call. And it's from one of the former producers at marketplace and she says. Hey i'm working over wondering what's wondering whether it's a script podcast platform and my boss. I told him about you because he has this idea for business wars. Would you be interested in talking with him about it. He got on the line and he said i'll send you over a script and maybe we can just Just wanna hear you talk. And so we started talking and he said well. If you'd like it we'd love for you to do it. And it all happened very quickly. And i didn't really know what i was getting myself into. I figured maybe this will be a three or four shows and so now here it is about to two years at a couple of months into it later and We now have gosh. I don't even know how many episodes out there now but a lot
Why the Celtics Might Be Starting to Tune Out Coach Brad Stevens
"I do wonder if the Celtics are starting to tune out Brad it took eight years guys Bob, you know, I think Larry said to you after 3 years, we stopped listening and I love Brad Stevenson. I think the coaches love Brad Stevens. I don't know if players love Brad Stevens. That's what I'm working. Love them. I just don't know if if again they have that respect form in a sense of of that. He can really motivate them and he can like push the right buttons. I think he knows one button to push and I'm not sure again. Sometimes you gotta jump guys. Sometimes you get to get up up in them. And that's never going to be Brad Steve Jobs. That's in and to me it's not just Brad. So this is Bob. There's nobody else in the staff that can do that. Like go get a veteran guy that everybody respects that can really jump these guys and get on them and be the bad guy cuz that's not Jay larranaga. That's not Jerome Allen. None of these guys. So not even Turner What's that? Not even sure, right? Yeah. I mean everything's going to be a player turned coach now like he's oh that's not going to be his role. I mean, I love Evan Turner. I think it's going to be a really good coach someday. But yeah, I think you're right to some extent. The only male say is getting rid of Hayward probably solves a few issues Dynamic, you know, that that he caused not off to his, you know through his own, you know doing like wasn't his fault, but but Gordon obviously Brad was trying to play him two years ago and get him minutes and get him. And I think a lot of players resented that
Tim Cook nixes TV show, so what?
"Should the c o of a company that makes tv shows. Had ito power over what is produced in shop. Well that's the question being asked about. Tim cook the apple. Ceo who just killed a project in production for the apple tv streaming service per the new york times because he didn't like the subject matter. We'll from the tone of the new york times article. This was a bad thing that someone with cooks power should be able to dictate what we see on the tv screen and to that. I say excuse me but welcome to the real world. I'm not a fan of the apple. Tv service which is put little on there that i wanna see but let's face. It cooks paying the bills. If he doesn't wanna series focused on a web site. That sounds like the now defunct gawker. Well that's his business. Just like exempts can overrule underlings disney warnermedia sony and other studios in production choices. That they don't like so can cook the apple. Tv fair has been rather bland because per trade reports cooking company. Don't feel that apple should be a home for dark material with suggestive content that would offend is customer base. And that's that makes sense to me but the problem is that nobody's talking about apple. Tv content. not that it's offending. Anyone i don't think apple has too dark to get viewers. The marvelous mrs maisel amazon. Isn't it's not edgy. it's just funny. And i love every minute of the crown on netflix. Which just had its best season ever and you certainly wouldn't call. That show are rated right. But i digress. Steve jobs used to micromanage apple down to arguing about what color is a button on a computer. Should be if cook wants to micromanage apple. Tv it's his store. He can do whatever he wants. Just give me some shows. I wanna watch please. I'm jefferson graham. You've been listening to talking tech.
Grading the Intel Era
"Today we're going to dive deep a bit on how the MAC ended up on Intel chips and how that went and how it's ending in the near future. Yeah I thought this'll be fine. I'm also a sign that you agreed to the idea. Early. Talk for an hour and half about. Processors like yes let's do it. So yeah a little bit different than a normal episode, but it's not every day that the MAC makes a big transition, those of us who follow the Mac and really care about as a platform. This is big important stuff. So we thought we could take a week and and talk about this here. It could be very soon that we see the first apple silicon Mac Apple said definitely by the end of twenty twenty, and here we are in the middle of October. So it could be anytime I mean they they definitely, GonNa have an iphone announcement soon, and then the question is, are they gonna say oh, by the way, we also have the silicon new apple can Max? ARE THEY GONNA? Wait for another? Announcement for that but but it's happening and I do think that the history of Intel can really kind of give us a good idea of what to expect going forward. Yeah, absolutely. So let's let's Kinda start there with the switch to Intel. So this this took place a lot longer ago than I thought it was everything feels like it's ten years ago was not ten years ago it was fifteen years ago. At WBZ, two thousand and five I've got a bunch of links in the show notes to the stuff. As we talk, you can go find the resources. This is the same keynote that podcast added to itunes which is Wild. The same one account like that. Though kind of feels nice for this episode well, I feel like back then in hindsight, apple was moving a lot faster because. They're bigger company now bigger companies move slower but they were they're crazy stuff like every announcement and this is right in the heyday of. I. Tunes and ipod stuff every time apple got on stage not just WDC. Would they had music events and they had macworld still? I tunes and ipod announcements were always part of the story and anytime you are thinking about announcements on this timer watching videos. It's just ever-present because it was a a huge deal for apple necessarily what got them to the size they were before the iphone launch, and then of course from then to now, it's been a drastic drastic change but the ipod and they were really important in the in this sort of. Really from two thousand and three, a couple of years in maybe two, thousand, eight or nine when it finally started to fade to engage grounded the iphone ipod tunes just like we're on stage we're GonNa talk about the stuff. Yeah I went back and watched the keynote and first of all, I just forgot how comfortable Steve Jobs was as a presenter. He's just. So I I mean the thing that made him good was he was just so comfortable and. It looked like he was just having a conversation with you as anybody who does public speaking can learn a lot from that but. What I thought was interesting was the parody between things he was saying then anything's apple said a few months ago as they announced the apple silicon transition definitely a lot of echoes of this event at Wbz twenty twenty. Down to even some of the same language and as we move into the technology side of it, a lot of the tech is being. Reused or new tech is using old names at least this is. Something that apple definitely leaned on I think this time around and this even wasn't hells I processor switch they went from the sixty eight K series to the power PC series. And we're not really getting into that today that was a relatively rough transition and places. Basically, a lot of the system software HAD TO BE EMULATED FOR AWHILE? Apple's hardware is moving faster than it software than. But they finally got their act together. But at this point, in two, thousand and five, the power PC train had basically just run out of steam and it's it's no. It was no mystery as to why they wanted to do this to said actually been rumored for a little while not as heavily rumored as the apple silicon stuff I think but the apple was also a lot more obvious in this which Intel was because like. Apples at this hiding their own chips. Of course, they WANNA use them for everything. I mean, they were already making apple silicon in all their mobile devices and people could already benchmark them against Matt does just slap that thing in and call today you know. I'm sure it's harder than that I don't mean to be going into it but. You know to slap it in there and move on.
iOS 14 & Android 11 Security Features
"What has changed against the best interests of smartphone users is the nature of today's threat landscape. It is far more active than ever. So smartphone users need to get all the help that they can get from their Os. Okay. So to this end, we now have android eleven, which brings billions of its users those who can upgrade and all those who purchase android eleven devices in the future more control over their security and privacy than they've had before and yes, it's unfortunate that such control is necessary but it's better to have it I would say the not at this point and you know. It's not like super intrusive anyway. Okay. So what's new and android eleven? One time permissions android eleven get a useful feature that IOS has had for some time. This allows users to grant APPs single use access to their devices, more sensitive permission such as location, microphone, and camera. We're seeing variations of this on different platforms. For example, what permission might be semi permanent users will be reminded after a while that such and such an APP still has such and such a permission and asked whether they. The APP, should retain it or not, which is you know sort of a nice compromise between immediately removing it and and sort of being. Kinder and gentler. So. android eleven will now autonomously revoke permissions. in addition to having the single use android eleven has the ability to autonomously revoke permissions for long unused APPs. It could be a bit of annoyance though those permissions can always be granted but this is sort of part of working to keep the casual user more safe while attempting to minimize the impact of enforcing that safety in general. We'll be talking here about this notion of minimum required permissions that that's always a good idea. We've talked about how firewalls flipped from once blocking, known a problem ports to blocking everything and only opening the ports which are known to be needed to have. To Be Open. In what I think is a huge win for android eleven. DOS will also be getting incremental updates. Google has increased their plug and play stores integration on Android Eleven, allowing those devices to directly download and install critical os security patches as modules instantly, just like an APP from Google servers. We we we talked about the plan for this a long time ago. The idea that the the US would get modular is and the Google. Would not have to force you know these. It would only be made available through the long oem loop to to a third party and hopefully to the end user but rather be delivered as part of the APP store. You know much more like the apple model has always been and that's now here. So boy I think that's going to be a huge welcome improvement. And it would sure be nice for everybody to be able to get eleven. I'm not sure you know how far back. Eleven will be made available to. US But. Once you get there, you have a chance of being kept current, which is. Fabulous. Also it tightens up an APPS right to obtain location information when it's in the foreground versus moving into the background, we'll talk about Ios, which has done some interesting things. There as as well when an APP requests permission to access the user's location android eleven initially, only grants for ground location permission that is while the APP is in use actively if the APP additionally desires access to location information while it's in the background, such APPs will now be required to produce a separate and independent permission request does not all just lumped together into location services and granting the permission is not as simple as quickly clicking. Yeah. Okay. Whatever No. Now to enable background location access users must go to a settings page and set an allow all the time option for the APPS location permissions and even to obtain such permission setting google will now be requiring their APP developers to explain why their APP needs background location access at all just wanting it just because that's no longer going to be enough in order to get it. So a bunch of, nice, improvements in android. Eleven. It's clear. They're all GONNA help improve user security. Especially, the from the store updates which I just think that's GonNa make a world of difference for so many for the security of so many android users. Yes there's more for the user to do it requires more. Involvement from the user but I think that's that's necessary as we go forward. And as for Iowa's fourteen. The list of. UPDATES and improvements I scanned through it. It is overwhelming. And, as you know being IOS user myself, I'm beginning to feel more and more as though I barely know how to use advice in my pocket, Oleo. Crazy I saw you jumping around A. Those it's yeah with my customizing things and locking things in place and it's like, okay, I mean it really it's not the phone that Steve Jobs gave us all those years ago. The Nice thing is you don't actually have to do any of that stuff and most important improvements are what you already talked about same with an Android, which is it now pops up warnings and let you know what's going on so and you'll get that matter. What
Apple product-launch event features one big unknown
"I'm not even going to wait. To Bury the leader, I am going to lead with the lead, which is apple's. Upcoming special event that's going to be happening on Tuesday the apple time flies special event virtual event. Not GonNa. Have any press their in person, but they are going to hold it on. Apple's campus. As. A matter of fact they put up a web page on their site for the virtual event and it has a little hidden Easter egg feature. If you go to the page on and I, list of ice, an IPAD or an iphone, and you tap on the little event logo, Apple Logo, you get a whole augmented reality experience that you can play around with. So it's pretty interesting I won't give away what is if you haven't seen it yet just fire up your way you're safari on Ios and go to the apple event page, but the event is going to be streamed live September fifteenth starting at ten Am Pacific Time from the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus. They're saying this one is going to be streamed I believe. So I don't know if there's going to be reproduced like they did the last apple event for worldwide developer conference or if it actually is truly going to be a live event, we'll just have to wait and see they are saying lives. So take them at their word on that one. As you can probably guess from the title, it is believed that this event is going to focus on Apple Watch, Time flies, watch it all fits. Typically, apple announces new watches alongside their iphones but as with almost everything this year this year is different. We already know that apple had plans to delay the announcements of release of the IPHONE that came up actually in the worldwide developer conference call or was it last quarterly results colleague Arab? Quarterly. Results called that came up and So we're not expecting iphones, but we are expecting Apple Watch. So Apple Watch series six is should be coming out. The rumors are looking to be true. We're expecting them to add a blood oxygen level monitoring as the main new health feature in it. Also, we're hearing about improved cardio gram or electrocardiogram features. Also, design is expected to remain mostly the same although we could always get some new finishes colors. Of course, new watch bans usually come out seasonally around this time. So the new fall colors we would expect to see that there is some hints that there might be a new blue color. Midnight Blue Agassi's this is also a rumor we've been hearing about surrounding the iphone twelve that it might come in a new. Blue Color. I'm I'm kind of thinking with a name like midnight blue. That it could be more like blue black SORTA like they did with the the green model in the iphone eleven although the logo for the new event is kind of this Pale lighter blue and I've seen some mockups and some people suspecting that it could be that sort of blue collar. But I think they specifically said midnight blue, which says to me a deep rich dark black. Style. Blue. So we could get a new color apple-watching that could be a hint of a possible new color item they a lot of times like to match those things and then there was also It's expected that they're going to drop the forced touch feature and that's mostly because they're also removing from watch os seven. So it doesn't really make sense need to have the hardware in there anymore, and apple has been moving away. From force touch. With all of their products in recent years. So that makes sense. There's also a rumor that I read that it could possibly the new Apple Watch. have. A fast charging feature to help better support the new sleep tracking that's coming in watch seven. So the ideas you'd be sleeping through the night and then when you're getting up in the morning I would remind you to throw it on the charger get charged back up for the day. and. So if you had a fast charging feature I think more people would be willing to do that to know the not going to run out with their to not. They're not going to excuse me run out of. Battery do during the day. So those are some of the new features planned for the APPALACHIA six or rumored to be planned for the Apple Watch series six. Also at this event, there are possible rumors of a replacement for the Apple Watch series three most of this information coming from leaker John Prosser. Says this is going to be the lower cost option. Apple has had the Apple Watch series three in the lineup that was kind of entry level Apple Watch, and then you would move from there. He says, the design would largely remain the same as the Apple Watch series for with a forty forty millimeter and a forty four millimeter size available. One of the things they would do to keep the cost down would would be that the new watch would not have some of the more advanced features like the e c g APP or the always on display definitely going to be an entry level model he also mentions the branding would be that the low cost model would be the Apple Watch with the series six, possibly getting a new apple watch pro branding, and while on the surface that makes a lot of sense considering how apple. Markets some of their other products and the other parts of the lineup kind of brings it in line with all of that, there has been some. there has been some conflicting information coming from I'm more who has been calling the new lower cost Apple Watch replacement for the Apple Watch series three Apple Watch S E and You know apple often will play around with different marketing names in different branding, leading all the way up to the event. So all of this kind of has to be taken with a grain of salt we won't really know to apple till apple announces it. So they've probably played around with all this branding. Do we take the low cost model and call it the se in that kind of matches with some of our other branding? Do we go the whole Apple Watch, Apple Watch pro route and I'm sure they've thought of it all.

Actually, let him create the thing that he created. Yes, it it's like they would have been on could've been on a wild tangent. Looking like another Microsoft that had you know, they were selling their. Software or they're selling their hardware to software providers. But like they eventually like he was relentlessly focused on a mash between software, and hardware, and he had to say no two thousand -tunities in order to arrive at that. And he didn't even get a see the realization of I mean, Apple's trillion dollar market cap was many many many years after his death. You know, I mean, the real fulfillment of his vision didn't even happen Intel a few years ago, and it's just cool to see what I'm saying. No for so long, and it's probably like a bit in those thousand things he's talking about. There was so many Monday little things like no to that manufacturer noted that part think about I mean or not his career it Pixar indefinitely. No to his career at, you know, next not his career in one hundred other job offers that he got what you were saying to like, no saying, no isn't just the obvious stuff. Like, brother. Law has some unrelated side business. He's pitching you, you know. And like, do you wanna be in with me, you want ground level ground level with me? That's kind of maybe some of the more obvious things. Right. But it's the saying no to the the hard things the opportunities that are legitimately good. You're saying, you know, Burt Reynolds said to on Solloway JAMES BOND..

"Uh but that noticing the details in life is something i can learn from leonardo speaking of details one of that one of the things that there are multiple questions on is how do you get to know the details of people's lives i think we all are trying to get to know the people around us better do you have favorite questions favorite ways of starting an inquiry to really understand someone yeah i mean one thing of feel as a biographer is that for a guy if you're riding from steve jobs ben franklin i'm sign leonardo dolphin all about dad i mean in fact if you read any memoir from you know bill clinton describing his fall stepfather actually or obama saying i guess every boys try neither live up to the sends of his father of the dreams of his father and for me it's both or richard nixon i was born in the house my father built so i look at steve jobs and he keeps talking about the influence in this case of is what he calls his father he pushing the wizards father but adoptive father likewise einstein who's father goes bankrupt trying to do uh light use electricity i mean do the electricity for certain cities leonardo living up to his father because leonardo's illegitimate and his father never makes him an air but you know so i could give one hundred examples put a begins with the relationship to parents and how do these when you think about your different different innovators that you profiled holiday defined success what were they after they were not after money i mean steve jobs could have made a lot more money at apple and he was always trying to make the product better i'll give you a tiny zampbell i remember and you probably do the mac the new mcthat that came out in two thousand after he returns and it's sort of the beautiful thing and is a few colors of slightly translucent and there's a handle on it.

"One of the things i i think is liberating about your work is sort of a collection if you think about jobs davinci franklin einstein the innovators is you also get to see the variety as its creativity that there's not one way to do it and by the way will quickly the varieties of kindness mean ben franklin and leonardo da vinci or the other extreme they have the more friends and you can possibly imagine that deeply kind people leonardo da vinci buys birds in the marketplace where he can free them and see them fly and doesn't want them killed and and as more people in renaissance florence and milan who call him my best friend so you know one of the things about a biography of especially the steve jobs is it's not a how to book you're not supposed to read it and say okay i will be that way that there are different varieties of the way to live your life i do think it's encouraging them at some level when you were you see these different people and you say luck you know okay maybe i'm not like jobs but i can see some of my qualities in in other great innovators what are some of the starkest differences you've seen and how they work yacht will one thing is innovators creative people tend to be very different and the people who are the most innovative and successful realize that you then have to put together a team of people with different styles in different towns whether it's ben franklin who's greatest contributions the founder was not being the smartest founder 'cause you know you had jefferson madison all these not being the most passionate because you've got john adams and his cousin samuel or even the man of great you know gravitas like washington it's he knew how to put together a team who's going to play shortstop who's good play you know who's gonna be the ryder madonna so he puts together a team whether it's should do the declaration of the constitution or whatever when i s steve jobs when he was dying what was your best product i thought he'd say the macro the iphone.

"Did he have to be so mean and most of them would say he didn't have to be this meeting but i ended up wanting to walk through a wall forehand when i asked steve at the end of the book did you have to be so mean did you have to be so cruel to people he said to me you know i guess claiming the east coast you said you east coast polite types always speak as if you have a velvet gloves on i mean there's a weird metaphor and velvet thank and you always sugarcoat your words when people do something that sucks i just have to tom it sucks because i'm just a middleclass kid trying to make sure i don't have deep players on my team and so i don't i can't afford to be as gentle and is nice now i do not try to answer the question fully in the book i want each reader of steve jobs to address the question is beginning to read the book to see some of the answers at the end and to answer for themselves there are a lot of people come up to me and the old days when i used to talk more about steve jobs and they'd say you know i'm just like steve jobs they arm of boston unlike camp so what he means well something does somebody does something that sucks i just tell them i said yeah have you ever invented the ipod have you ever created on the iphone have you ever design the mac and of course you don't have a lot of li way to do that even if you have invented the ipod and i guess my answer in late retrospect not something i would've put in the book is now you don't have to be that mean you don't have to be cruel to people you have to be tough in you have to be intellectually honest which sometimes i have trouble doing because i'm almost at the other extreme as a manager which is if they're a tough thing to say somebody i try to get my deputy you know you go.

"Uh you know push you a little bit don't be afraid of daydreaming and then trying the impossible so you mentioned steve jobs a few times at it it sounds like he was one of the reasons he wrote this i guess when with steve jobs tells you to write a book you have to do it you you got to do that process totally differently so with with the others that you profiled it's been historical look at people who are no longer with us in the jobs case usbaed many many hours with him and also many people who knew him well what was the experience like getting to know who the person who many people sort of you is the greatest innovator of our time well he was deeply spiritual very intense person who you know if you've read the bulk had rough edges and was nasty at times and mean but also having driven people crazy that also walk through walls for me drive them to do things that they didn't know they could do and so the question is you know how do you get that intense personality and of course working with him you know i was daily 'cause i you know sometimes for days on end either staying at his own more nearby uh subject to watching him sort of have that very mick curiel as he put it personality uh and it was difficult especially when it was clear he wasn't going to beat the cancer and he was angry at times you on painkillers at times and saying things at times that i thought you know i mean about people on knew were his friends or people very close to him and that but presented i know we're not at the annenberg school with the warden school but a journalistic dilemma because all my life it was always to try to get people to say things at than would be kind of explosive an exciting there was a lot i ended up leaving out of the book where i thought okay he's just said some really mean things that are gonna be and i had to balance.

"Yeah but words interesting is when they're innovative or creative as in your blocks and i said well what's the pattern that does that and the pattern tends to be or at least one of the patterns to be curious across disciplines you're at a university now that pioneered crossing disciplines as opposed to other ivs that really do have you know departments and disciplines much more silo ben franklin of course did that he goes up and down the coast looking at how a swirls of air resembled the swirls of the northeastern storms and then he discovers the gulf shrink same with leonardo he sees patterns across nature and so when i was doing steve jobs he would end his product presentations always with the intersection of the arts and then and technology now aide said at that intersections where creativity happens and he said to me when does the ultimate of that and then bill gates who you've talked to he bought the codex leicester the science one of the signs notebooks of leonardo and so that ability not just to be connect art and science but in leonardo's case to make no distinction between the beauty of art and science that's why he was sort of the final mountain to climb in this series of books but i'll turn it back to you because people like myself right biographies and then people like you actually dstld the wisdom of the biographies we're just destroyed tell us how do you take like a set of biographies and say i'm going to find the lessons that you put in your course in your books get turn this around on me this is my interview.
