This little-known video was put together by Apple employees to celebrate Steve Jobs’ 30th birthday back on February 24th 1985. Given the tragic news this week, the video and its collection of memories is all the more poignant.
As Harry McCracken notes, the film contains a number of photos and events that are not widely known outside Job’s closest circles and Apple employees, portraying a playful side to his character that few saw. The song playing in the video is ‘My Back Pages’ by Bob Dylan, one of his idols and favourite musicians.
Credit for the video goes to Harry and Craig Elliott–Apple and Tom Hughes, the two Apple employees who told him of it. Truly moving, it is sure to go viral.
