Young Steve Jobs Not Quite Ready for His Close-Up

(YouTube link)

Once upon a time, before his fairy godmother gave him the magical Turtleneck of Confidence, Steve Jobs was a young man with interesting facial hair and an aversion to the TV cameras.  We're talking the kind of nervousness that is accompanied by serious intestinal distress. This clip is a true Mac classic.

Back in the late 70's Steve Jobs wasn't exactly a household name, but he was important enough to appear on Nightline. The footage after the break is not of the actual interview, Steve's just getting his microphone and monitor set up, but he's visibly nervous and seemingly impressed with the technology around him. It's not exactly news, but it is a very interesting way to spend one minute and thirty-seven seconds on the internet.
