An Old Documentary On Silicon Valley
17 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Steve Jobs: Visionary Entrepreneur is an hour documentary presented by the Silicon Valley Historical Association(SVHA).While the title states the name of Steve Jobs,the late Apple CEO was only presented in one-third of the running time of the documentary for it also includes interviews of Apple co-founders Steve Wozniak and Mark Markkula,Atari founder Nolan Bushnell,Oracle founder Larry Ellison and many others.John McLaughlin,president of SVHA,act as narrator.

Jobs is presented in a 15-minute interview that was held back in 1994 wherein he discusses risk,failure,his life experiences with Woz,creating one's own environment,starting a new company and the early days of Apple Computer.While the rest of the interviewees like Bushnell,Ellison,Markkula,Woz and the rest provided insights on Jobs' impact in their businesses and their lives.In addition to that,the academics discussed the growth of Silicon Valley as well as its history as compared to the Renaissance Era.

Overall,this is not a documentary primarily about Steve Jobs.This is more about Silicon Valley.Added to that,the academics dealt more about the Valley's company founders focusing primarily on the late Apple CEO despite using his name in the title.Finally,one may consider it outdated considering it was made more than 20 years ago and one must realize that conditions in the Valley have changed after NAFTA (North American Free Trade Act) was passed by Congress and outsourcing and offshoring have become rampant in the area.
