Steven Sinofsky on the ‘Bicycle for the Mind’

For a long time, Steve Jobs talked about how personal computers were a “bicycle for the mind” as a way of explaining how revolutionary they would be. In a lengthy Twitter thread that’s now a Medium post, former Microsoft executive Steven Sinofsky dives deep into the bicycle metaphors, with vintage magazine scans, Steve Jobs YouTube clips, and more. With a guest appearance from Ted Koppel and the Space Shuttle main computer!

It’s a great ride and an important bit of computer history.
