Steve Jobs riffs on the Library of Congress, education and ‘bicycle for our mind’

23 December 2011 1,043 views No Comment

From Michael Lawrence Films’ Memory & Imagination: New Pathways to the Library of Congress, we see an early NeXT Steve Jobs talking about superficially disparate things: the importance of libraries, how video games might change education and how the personal computer, one of his more famous analogies, is like a bicycle for the mind. Watch the clip after the break.

I don’t know about your city of municipality, but libraries here are still very busy, vibrant places and many, many people are there for more than the free wifi.

My wife and I have instilled a love of books into our kids, and we give to our libraries, as well as NPR and PBS (the library’s broadcast complement). Get out and enjoy your local library today…
