スティーブ・ウォズニアックの英語

Q: What is one message would you leave for aspiring leaders who want to leave a legacy what would it be?

Yeah. it would be that you need a lot of vision and ideas but ideas alone are not the answer.  You need builders. You need entrepreneurs. You need people that have created products and turn ideas into reality in the past.

And you need those people to be with you when you found a company from the very start because engineers have solved the problem so used to solving problems whether it’s hard work or salt software in their lives.

They think of them to think beyond the limitations of what they’re dealing with to do things in clever ways.

And they’ll come up with more ideas for what you can have in your product that you’re proposing to raise money for. So don’t raise money until you have engineers.

Secondly don’t try to raise money just an idea on paper try to build working models even if it’s a computer virtual demonstration that

somebody can actually interact with in feel because feeling how something works is an awful lot very important to how successful it will be.

Q: Thank you. Actually I have one last question. (Sure.) What is the one thing in your life that you are the most.

I’m actually most proud of caring about people being nice to people and being, and- and for- for more than myself.

I’m very proud of all that I’ve given to people that deserve it to try to be fair- fair and equitable.

And that I’m not above other people there is nobody the world that I think a lot more special and important than you know. I’ve been the opposite of that.

ちなみに、こちらのオーストラリアでのインタビューも紹介します。印象的だった終盤部分のみテキストを書き起こしてみます。

(11;00~)終盤部分を書き起こします。

I know it’s about. I’ve been on Big Bang Theory. But you know, what a lot of these things we say popularized the geek. Because of people like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs and myself and coming up from nowhere have school. Young school kids with an idea humble start can take you somewhere.

But now maybe I don’t I really think if you go down to school back to school, you’re going to find that these little geeks that know how to do. All that stuff aren’t that many pop more popular than they were.

And I- I maybe- maybe some people talk about it. I think it’s an older age when life has come to mean something to you. And “Wow! starting your own thing having a business is important”. That it gets more, you know, recognition maybe by university level.

But not before I think. Before university it’s a gift is still kind of you something people don’t want to necessarily be like.  I’m stuck here. I’m not normal but I love doing what I’m doing.

Q: So an apple has taken a very strong stone sewn on privacy and into the point of even defined government’s popping up in the world opinion and the FBI. Do you think that’s the right thing that Tim Cook to done just about every major technology company has taken a strong stance on privacy.

Apples the only one that kept their word they do it they do it for real they don’t just talk the talk. We’re giving you privacy nobody will get your data except us a lot of them say no apple says.

We even we won’t get your credit cards and your history and all that and they’re the most restful and I’m very proud of that.

And so do you think that was ten collaborative culture in or do you think that existed five to ten. I think it existed prior to TM but i think i’m very thankful that Tim is at the head of things because the head is is the ultimate decider.

And I’m glad to see it all happening it’s um it’s rare he’s even stood up to the FBI and you know what Apple he’s made a point apple will gladly help the FBI in legitimate ways but people have to have a part of their personal life there’s a reason for privacy that you can have things in your life and you’ll be too scared to talk about your behavior becomes very modified and very constricted if you don’t have enough privacy.

So in Australia currently apples in a slight dispute with some thanks what do you think the bank’s oh that one that one.

I don’t know. I do know the apple pays in Australia and I walk up to every paper terminal I just pay with my watch it’s so easy and we’ll have a ring visa announced that somebody else.
They’re gonna have a little visa card green no I so so these are great things.

I don’t know what the dispute with the banks is. Maybe it’s over what percentages everybody gets that’s one of the reasons we aren’t.

We see, we have a international standard on Wi-Fi. You have Wi-Fi on your computer. It works anywhere in the world the same but all these banking systems and mobile payments and ones that are you know online and your stored digitally on your computer, on your on your smartphone. Everybody wants their peace the cut and there’s no one standard is all done sure. But everybody’s trying to get in get their way.

What do you think Apple should have opened up the NSA was right into an idea.I and I haven’t thought about that one deeply but usually when I think about it. I say at least to some in some ways a lot of these technologies should be open so that everybody can jump into one standard.

And but apples way is a lot where we want to make sure. You have to we get the you know your money using our system rather than I think.

Licensing the system around very reasonable rates or make it an open standard would help it happen I would love there to be a worldwide standard like one credit card that works everywhere and it well.

Thank you very much very much Steve for joining us. Unfortunately we have run out of time so you’ve got to be honest types of the color to thank you. Wish we had more time. Thanks.
