A Nervous Steve Jobs? Yes, It Happened

Steve Jobs wasn't always the calm, cool, collected Overlord of All Your Gadgets. Once, he was a nervous 20-something about to make one of his first TV appearances.

"I'm deathly ill, actually, and ready to throw up at any moment," says a young Jobs, with a thick beard, big glasses and a brown suit. "I'm not joking."

The video was uploaded to YouTube by a user named radi0chik, who says Jobs is preparing for a TV appearance on KGO sometime around 1978. He would have been around 23 at the time.
