Part 6: Jobs' experience at Apple (the first time)

Jobs recalls the heady early days at Apple: "Hardly anybody had families at the beginning, and we all worked like maniacs. And the greatest joy was that we felt we were fashioning collective works of art, much like twentieth-century physics."

"Apple was this incredible journey. I mean, we did some amazing things there. The thing that bound us together at Apple was the ability to make things that were going to change the world. That was very important.

"We were all pretty young. The average age in the company was mid to late twenties. Hardly anybody had families at the beginning, and we all worked like maniacs. And the greatest joy was that we felt we were fashioning collective works of art, much like twentieth-century physics. Something important that would last, that people contributed to and then could give to more people; the amplification factor was very large."
