Steve Jobs’ speech about turning a genius’ brain into a computer25 July, 2014 / Articles
In 1985, Steve Jobs arrived to Svaneholm Castle in Sweden to analyze the impact of the personal-computing revolution on education. Back then, we were just on the cusp of what he called the era of “free intellectual energy.” And this revolution, he assured a room full of educators, would forever change the way we learned.
In this new world, a computer would be more than a utilitarian, number-crunching appliance. It would give us information, anytime, anywhere. That was already starting to happen in the ’80s at universities and research institutions that were hooked up to the burgeoning internet. He’d said similar things before, and these days, we are in fact living in Steve’s prophesied wonderland of on-demand information.
