John Markoff interviews iPhone team members
Museum Historian John Markoff moderates a discussion with former iPhone team members Hugo Fiennes, Nitin Ganatra and Scott Herz, followed by a conversation with Scott Forstall.
Finally saw the video last night, and it’s so good 1. Amazing insights and fun stories from hardware and software.
A few random thoughts:
- Loved the fellowship between the first speakers.
- When a questions was above their pay grade, none flinched before not answering.
- Scott Herz is hilarious
- Favorite moment is when Scott Herz says that he’d like a better text selection method on iOS. Here, here.
- Scott Forstall personality feels acted. But I get the impression he’s a really smart person that gets into normal mode character to be able to communicate.
I watched it on the Facebook link, and was so happy when CHM posted it on YouTube. Say what you will, but Google is the lesser of two evils.↩︎
