Steve Jobs Stanford Speech

The first time I saw Steve Jobs Stanford commencement speech was through iTunes U when this Apple education service was just launched a few months back. iTunes U is a part of the iTunes Store featuring free lectures, language lessons, audiobooks, and others, that people can enjoy on their iPod, iPhone, Mac or PC.

I had a high hope at that time that iTunes U would revolutionize or at least would give significant impact on knowledge sharing drive. However, the one way sharing environment, from Apple to world, has limited its value, as nobody could post materials to iTunes U except Apple. It is YouTube that apparently revolutionizes the true knowledge sharing in all possible ways.

The video was posted by KevinnOh with English subtitle. It's quite an interesting and inspiring short story of Steve Jobs' life, from his childhood era to lessons he got by being a college drop-out, and his struggles in life.





I was wondering, how many excellent educational speeches, lectures, debates, discussions, are buried somewhere in companies' drawers, or in public or personal libraries. There are surely many, and are dusty already.

The beauty and the power of knowledge is when they are shared. We probably have to promote freerights instead of copyrights for such precious educational materials. But life has never been perfect. Many people still love selling knowledge and wisdom only to those who can pay, instead of just sharing them to all.

  2. Yeah emang bener bgt. Kekuatan ilmu pengetahuan ada pada saat seseorang mau membaginya dgn yg lain. Tp zaman skrg nggak ada yg gratis. Padahal ada pepatah yg mengatakan ilmu akan bertambah jika kita sering berbagi knowledge

  8. A lot of the web is getting locked down like this. Even though it was first designed to foster communication and exchange, big companies like Apply or locking developer access to their platforms therefore allowing them to charge big bucks for the select few that do.

  12. I think the power of knowledge is on the sharing of that knowledge. But not all people want to share their knowledge.
