News & Opinion: Inside Steve's Brain Interview With Leander Kahney
This week, we talk with Leander Kahney and his new book Inside Steve's Brain.
Kahney has been covering Apple as a journalist for over a decade. He started writing from MacWorld and now writes for Wired.
In the book, Kahney tries to get beyond the typical media depictions of Jobs as either industry god or managerial tyrant. We talked about design as more than veneer, how the best programmer is 100 times better than the average one, and how Jobs wants to "put a ding in the universe."
