PBS’, ‘Steve Jobs – One Last Thing’

March 25, 2012

Watched a great special, a documentary that originally aired in November of 2011 (not long after Jobs’ death on October, 5, 2011) on the life of Steve Jobs, on PBS, ‘Steve Jobs – One Last Thing,’ an obvious play off of Jobs’ signature phrase when announcing a new product, employed near the end of his presentation to keep people on the edge of their chairs. Mark Stephens (a.k.a. ‘Robert X. Cringely’/’I., Cringely’), Demetri Goritsas, and Walt Mossberg were the principal narrators, with notable pieces by Steve Wosniak, Ronald Wayne, and Bill Fernandez.
Great piece, directed by Mimi O’Connor. Noteworthy quote in the film, by Jobs:

“Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is, everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you … the minute that you understand that you can poke life … that you can change it, you can mould it … that’s maybe the most important thing.”
