Earlier this month we posted a short snippet of footage from a 1994 interview in which recently passed Apple CEO Steve Jobs provides his thoughts on life and making a difference in the world.

The full 30 minute video — Steve Jobs: Secrets of Life — is now available to watch in full after the Santa Clara Valley Historical Association made it available over pay-per-view (here) for $9.99 *now* $5.99.

The interview was originally part of the documentary Silicon Valley: A 100 Year Renaissance, hosted by Walter Cronkite and put together by the association, but now the Jobs footage has been made into a standalone video product.

Other big hitters that are included in the film’s footage include Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Nolan Bushnell (founder of Atari), Scott McNealy (founder of Sun Microsystems), Larry Ellison (founder of Oracle) and a number of other founders of Silicon Valley firms and influential Apple staff.

All proceeds from the sale of Steve Jobs: Secrets of Life will go to the association and its projects, which research and record “the Silicon Valley Phenomenon”.

Here’s a recap of the teaser, which can also be seen at stevejobssecretsoflife.org.
