Steve Jobs Presenting the Apple Circle Building

Xah Lee, 2011-08-21

Steve Jobs, plans to create a new building for Apple. The building is a giant circle, 4 stories high. With capacity to host 12k people. Here's his presentation to the Cupertino City Council

Steve Jobs looks gaunt. He's 50 something. 10 yrs older then me. I watched him since 1990. We all get old.

Steve Jobs Presents to the Cupertino City Council, 2007-06-07

One thing interesting about this video is that, normally, he does presentations at tech conferences, or to stock holders. Of which, he freely peddles and brags, to a large audience, from hundreds to thousands. However, here, the atmosphere is different. His audience is just a handful, and they are city councils. It's almost like a defendant vs several judges. However, his job here is still pitching, like a salesman.

Note: just a month after this presentation, Jobs announced that he quits CEO. (it's all over the news)
