'Lost interview' with Jobs to screen in Palo Alto

Old VHS tape found in film director's garage following Apple co-founder's death last month

A "lost interview" with the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs will be screened in Palo Alto Nov. 16 through Nov. 22.

The 70-minute interview, 10 minutes of which were aired in a 1996 miniseries "Triumph of the Nerds: The Rise of Accidental Empires" will be shown at 17 Landmark theaters across the country under the title "Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview," the Los Angeles Times reported.

"Triumph of the Nerds" director Paul Sen retrieved a VHS tape of the Jobs interview from his garage after Jobs' died Oct. 5, the Times said. The interview was conducted between Jobs' two stints at Apple.

The screening in most theaters will be for Nov. 16 and 17, but will be extended to a seven-day run at the Aquarius Theatre in Palo Alto, a spokeswoman said.

Screening times should be available starting Monday, she said.

I'm really sad that Steve Jobs died. But this forced thing of going back and continuing to push him at the public as a giant corporate PR campaign to aid the image of capitalism is starting to really bug me.

Don't people realize that Jobs is being used, just like everyone else is being used to prop up this big corporate mess by taking his cache as a very interesting and unique entrepreneur and human being to associate his style and life with the rest of the stuff that is going on right now in America to ease the image of the mutated monster capitalism in the US has become.

I'd love to hear some of his comments on Apple's outsourcing of jobs and factories/manufacturing to China ... what he thinks politically of what China is doing and why he participated in it in such a huge way? I'd love to hear about what he thought of his tax bill at the end of the year.

What we have gotten so far is that Steve Jobs claimed that he never tried to be the richest man in the world or compete on that level with Bill Gates or Larry Ellison, but what was he really like and what did he really think.

There must be something interesting there since he did live a fairly regular life in an ordinary place, without a giant mansion and a secure compound and whatever else.

I have to say I'm dying to hear his political point of view, but whatever it is I think it will be way too controversial and possibly something most of American business might not want to hear.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
