This presentation (from the Macintosh), at Apple's annual shareholders' meeting on January 24, is legendary in the history of technology. What is not so well remembered: Jobs did it all twice, in less than a week. Six days after presenting Mac at the Flint Center, on the campus of De Anza College, near the company's headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., He performed his show once again at the Boston Computer Society monthly meeting. His host, Jonathan Rotenberg, was a 20-year-old student at Brown University who had co-founded BCS in 1977 at the age of 13.
Comparing the two presentations, the script it was practically the same, but the audience (technology lovers and non-investors), the atmosphere and the bonus material (a question and answer session with the team that created the Macintosh) undoubtedly make a huge difference. It is worth reading the article written by Harry McCracken on TIME.com and, of course, see the presentation (above) of just over an hour and a half. (MacRumors)
