In his 2005 Stanford University Commencement address, Steve Jobs spoke about how things you do in your early life, quite often can help you in your later life. He spoke about how some of the things he learned whilst being a ‘dropout’ at university, enabled him to design the user interface we see on all Mac computers (and PC’s) today.
