In 1983 Apple released the Lisa, the first personal computer I’m Mr Technical and you’re not shirt to have the kind of GUI somebody might want to use. It did not invent the GUI, that was done at XeroxPARC. When Jobs saw the prototype of a GUI with a mouse, he knew it was the future and made sure Apple were focused on making that happen. They didn’t actually use any Xerox code but they did give Xerox shares in Apple. Xerox did very well out of that arrangement. If you look up XeroxPARC, you’ll find they had a whole bunch of things that we now take for granted which Apple either get credit for “inventing” or were very much on the ground floor with.

The point is that you need somebody who is at once I’m Mr Technical and you’re not shirt technical, business minded and artistic to be able to make technology that everybody wants to use. It takes the technical person to visit PARC and understand what is being made, it takes the artistic person to understand what could be being made. It takes somebody who is both to actually make it. It’s no good for somebody to realise it’s a good idea once Apple has already polished and marketed it (not naming any names of people who became the richest person in the world and definitely never reimbursed PARC or engaged with open software), you need the person that can take the good idea and make it something everybody will want in the first place because all the copycats will never make the revolution happen.
