If you ever get the chance to hear Pixar’s Michael B. Johnson speak, you should leap at the chance. Known to the Twitterverse as @drwave, Michael is an incredibly entertaining speaker and, it turns out, a terrific interviewer.
In addition to his role supervising the Tools Story/Editorial team at Pixar, Wave is on the Board of the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco. The video below, filmed at the Cartoon Art Museum, is a fascinating interview Michael did with three people who witnessed the early days of NeXT firsthand: Doug Menuez, Peter Graffagnino, and Don Melton.
Lots of anecdotes including Steve Jobs, a bit of early Apple, and lots of the birth of various technologies that came together at NeXT.
