You’ve all probably heard of Clubhouse by now, the “drop in chat app” on iOS.
I’ve been dipping my toes into it the last few weeks, but haven’t been lucky enough to join a conversation that inspired me. Part of it is due to time-zone differences, and availability on my part.
Nevertheless, I woke up one morning to a notification of the Computer History Museum which hosted a conversation entitled “Steve Jobs Stories” on Clubhouse the day before what would have been his 66th birthday on Feb 23, 2021. The list of participants was jaw-dropping:
Chris Fralic, Steven Levy, Esther Dyson, Mike Slade, John/Diane Sculley, Seth Godin, Andy Cunningham, Dan’l Lewin, Doug Menuez, Regis McKenna, Andy Hertzfeld, and Steven Rosenblatt.
Time-zone differences kicking in, I missed it. But the CHM archived it and posted it to YouTube. The full conversation is now available to listen to.
You don’t have to be a Steve Job fan to enjoy this conversation. The stories are all very humane and told in a humble and relaxed fashion. I wonder how much the ephemeral nature of Clubhouse contributed to such an amazing moment.
