Just a reminder. One week from tonight I will be appearing onstage with Guy Kawasaki at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. We’ve shelved the original plans for a steel cage death match, and put the “dance off” on hold. Might still happen but we’re not sure. Guy has some kind of knee problem that prevents him from dancing, or so he says. So it looks like just the two of us sitting and chatting — kind of a pale imitation of the Jobso-v-Gates appearance at All Things D.
I’m hoping Guy will reminisce a bit about the predecessor to the iPhone that he and I first discussed and even prototyped back in the early 1980s. Honestly, I know it sounds incredible, but all this stuff we’re making at Apple today? iPods, iTunes, iPhone? Video, music? Portable digital media devices? The destruction of the telecom industry and the television industry and the movie and music industries? We saw all of this coming more than 20 years ago. Guy was there and he’ll vouch for that. Anyhoo, if you want to attend you need to RSVP with LinkedIn, which is hosting the event. More information here.
