Steve Jobs' Keynotes: Behind the Curtain

Fascinating piece in The Guardian on the work that goes into a Steve Jobs keynote presentation. I remember hearing stories about Jobs when I worked at Apple, but never saw the man himself in person.

I remember my first presentation at a big corporate show, and the coach the company hired to ensure us geeks would do ok up on the podium. Like I never thought it would be ok to stick your hand in your pocket when doing a big preso. Or that the size of your gestures had to be proportionate to the size of the room and audience. Kind of common sense now, but it was news to me back then.
