Yesterday I was contacted by one of the people behind the new Kickstarter “Firing Steve Jobs”. This is a movie about one of the most dramatic and important moments in Steve Jobs life; the one in which he was fired from Apple.
You can find the Kickstarter here:
“We are going to capture the intimate contradiction of this event, the controversial path that led to such a tough decision: we want you to know how you would feel “Firing Steve Jobs”. As he himself used to describe it, this experience was the best thing that could ever happen to him. It has been a crucial moment in Job’s professional life. This is true for Apple also, who put themselves on the path of self-destruction, that inevitably had occurred without Jobs comeback in the late 90’s. Why did they at Apple behead themselves by firing their own front man, the first cover man in the digital industry history? Why did they consciously get rid of the strongest drive for vision and innovation of their entire ranks?”
They have 30 days to go and 115 backers so far.
