It was 1985. Apple had just forced Steve Jobs out. He was starting to build the NeXT computer, the same desktop station that Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau would use to build the first web server software and later the World Wide Web. Jobs envisioned transforming education with supercomputers. Ross Perot took him to lunch and plunked $20 million into the company. Little did anyone know back then we were on the precipice of the digital revolution.
Photojournalist Doug Menuez was given unlimited access to document a young Jobs during this golden moment in time for Silicon Valley from 1985-2000. He’s since published a book about it (“Fearless Genius” out on Amazon) and is starting to release a series of stories on Storehouse about his personal experience with Jobs.
