Don Melton's Memories of Steve Jobs

The room got quiet. Steve and I sat side-by-side in front of the demo machine staring at Safari. Suddenly we turned to each other and said at the same time, “In the page address field!”


Smiles all around. Which I followed with, “I’ll have a working version of that for you by the end of the week.” Over-committing my engineering team, of course.

But I didn’t care. I had just invented something with the Big Guy. True, it was a trifle, but there’s no feeling like sharing even a tiny byline with Steve.

Great, great read. Everything Don Melton writes online should be compulsory reading for every Apple fan. There aren't many sources around for this kind of material, much less with Melton's eloquence and ability to naturally convey his emotion.
