Video Reveals Steve Jobs Expected To Be Forgotten By History

CUPERTINO (CNET) – In 1994, while at Next, Steve Jobs gave a 20-minute interview to the Silicon Valley Historical Association (SVHA) in which he spoke about his legacy. Interestingly, at that point, he expected that he and his accomplishments would be more or less forgotten within a few decades.

A clip from that interview has just been posted to YouTube for the first time this week to help promote the SVHA’s 60-minute documentary on Jobs, “Steve Jobs: Visionary Entrepreneur.”
