The Computer History Museum, or CHM, on Monday announced the launch of its new online exhibit on Apple's co-founder Steve Jobs.
The exhibit is called Steve Jobs... First, Last, One more thing... and it details Jobs' life from his days in his high school electronics club to the creation of the the iPad. It features a rare footage of Jobs making a presentation in 1980.
What we are doing is building tools that amplify a human ability, Jobs said in the video. What we are working towards now is the ability to amplify another human ability and we are just starting to get glimmerings of where it is going to go.
In the video he also spoke about how every secretary in the company had an Apple computer on their desks. Jobs also spoke about Apple's plans for the coming years.
The history museum noted that the new exhibit contains objects from the Museum's permanent collection. It has more than 100,000 artifacts to include 3,000 Apple-related items.
In Jobs's own words, we hear how luck as well as skill played big roles in Apple's founding, Dag Spicer, CHM's senior curator, said via press release. We also see how focused, articulate and convincing Jobs could be, even at this early stage.
Jobs died on Oct. 5 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
CHM is a non-profit located in Mountain View, Calif. It has a 40-year legacy in exploring the history of computing and its ongoing impact on society.
The Museum's mission is to preserve and celebrate computer history and is said to be the home of the largest international collection of computing artifacts in the world. This includes computer hardware, software, documentation, ephemera, photographs and moving images.
