What are your thoughts about professionalism in IT?
Well there are a lot of cases where lack of professionalism arises and grows and doesn't get noticed, partly because a lot of the work in IT is strange and foreign.
It's almost like a language of its own and the normal people in the company, the executives and so on, can't understand the technical aspects.
Even if you're creating a web page it's easy to hack around, play around and get a job done but not really follow standards. In my case for example I didn't have a college degree yet we started the company.
Apple has been going 30 years, looking back would you do anything differently if you had your time again?
Well I was the technician mainly, I was an engineer and there are a couple of things that I might have done differently but they are rather small things. I judge the work by quality and innovation and everything I did in the Apple days was A plus. I don't really feel that I had any places where I would do things differently.
