Boxes For All Reasons

Steve Jobs talks about the Blue Box

Posted on: July 8, 2011

Early on in their careers, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the Blue Box.  The Box transfered signals to a phone which made it possible for the user to call around the world for free.  This Blue Box doesn’t have much to do with  our wooden boxes, except that they are both boxes and that the Blue Box was kept inside a wooden box.  The Blue Box sure is a cool use for a box, though. And a completely illegal use for a box.

Sometimes I forget that the whole world doesn’t share Silicon Valley’s intense interest in the sociology of Silicon Valley.  For those who don’t share that interest, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak (Jobs referes to him as Woz in this clip) started Apple Computer.  Steve Jobs is still the CEO (although I believe he’s on a leave of absence).
