Watch Steve Jobs Speaking At A Microsoft Conference In 1996 [Business Insider]

Interesting to watch this session from ~15 years ago and ponder how far Web app architecture and tools have evolved (or not…).  Also a blast from the past for the brief Bob Muglia intro.

Here's a fun video to watch from Channel 9, via Daring Fireball. Steve Jobs is presenting on Web Objects at the 1996 Microsoft Professional Developers conference at 7 PM at night.

Unlike the Jobs keynotes we've grown accustomed to seeing the last 10 years, he doesn't have the same swagger on stage. He actually seems humbled, like a guy working a struggling startup. Also, unlike what we're used to seeing now, he's not talking about a consumer focused product.

It's worth watching for a few minutes to remember how far he and Apple have come.
