Watch Steve Jobs pitch the Cupertino city council

Yesterday, Steve Jobs pitched the Cupertino city council on building a new Apple campus. Yes, it's multimedia. And it's fun to see how he reacts when the councilman gives him advice on how to make his presentation at 4:25.

He makes even a building sound like a magical feat: "We've come up with a design that puts 12,000 people in one building. When you think about that, that's rather odd." I wonder how unusual that number is? Via.


  1. Cupertino doesn't have skyscrapers or even high rises, so 12,000 in a building is sort of saying something there (though it's not magical--that many people show up for a football game at the larger universities).

  2. Based on the usual Apple store on any given weekend 12,000 people in one building sounds about right.
