Event: Steve Jobs Rebooted

When a young Steve Jobs applied for a job at Atari in 1973, the application asked if he had access to transportation. “Possible but not probable,” he wrote. Among his skills, he listed “Computers—yes.” Jobs’s employment at Atari was an inauspicious start to the tech career of a man who three years later cofounded Apple, the company that brought us Mac computers, iPads, and, of course, iPhones; a man who became a Silicon Valley legend; and a man who had a strained relationship with his daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs before he passed away in 2011.
