Verden blev lidt mindre spændende, da Steve Jobs forlod den i denne uge. Det er let at blive viklet ind i en masse debat om Jobs, da han var en karakter, som indbød til et had / kærlighedsforhold fra sine medmennesker.

Sandt er det i hvert fald, at teknologiverdenen ville se meget anderledes ud i dag, hvis ikke det havde været for Jobs. Jeg faldt over følgende interview, hvor nogle tunge drenge taler om manden, der startede Apple (sammen med Woz og Wayne). Spændende, hvis du har tiden.

Et underholdende citat, som illustrerer forskellen på, hvordan design anskues hos Microsoft og hos Apple.

An anecdotal story, a friend of mine was at meetings at Apple and Microsoft on the same day and this was in the last year, so this was recently.

He went into the Apple meeting (he’s a vendor for Apple) and when he went into the meeting at Apple as soon as the designers walked in the room, everyone stopped talking because the designers are the most respected people in the organization. Everyone knows the designers speak for Steve because they have direct reporting to him. It is only at Apple where design reports directly to the CEO.

Later in the day he was at Microsoft. When he went into the Microsoft meeting, everybody was talking and then the meeting starts and no designers ever walk into the room. All the technical people are sitting there trying to add their ideas of what ought to be in the design.

That’s a recipe for disaster.
