Summary:

At Apple’s iPad launch event last week, I spoke with uber venture capitalist John Doerr (of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers), The New York Times media critic David Carr and my former boss, Josh Quittner to get their thoughts on the device.

At Apple’s iPad launch event last week, I spoke with uber venture capitalist John Doerr (of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers), The New York Times media critic David Carr and my former boss, Josh Quittner (who is now helping Time Inc. figure out its devices strategy.) I wanted to know if they believed the device would have a far-reaching impact.

  1. I like how John caught himself when he said that it’s going to change the state of American education, and then he realized he was talking to a dark-skinned person with a foreign accent and switched to “global education”. I’m just saying it was kind of funny to me, that’s all.

  2. Most striking thing about this video has to be the fake American accent. Loved it. Very funny indeed.

    1. Whats funny about the video ? I thought the important thing is to get the perspective of the three guys not the accent. I am surprised that John Doerr likes the iPad.

      1. Gee, the fact that he started a $100M venture fund for iphone apps has nothing to do with that, right?

  3. Is that flash I see?

    1. Yes indeed. Can’t watch it on iPad.

  4. Good interviews, with good perspectives. Thanks for airing this. One observation about the close up interviews bookending the video–who wants to see these people’s pores & wrinkles?!! :-) That’s the reason traditional TV news desks employ a separate camera person.

    Much better was when the video focused on the iPad itself being demonstrated, with voice overviews of the discussion with the SI guy talking about the product and Mr. Malik interacting with him.

    Wonderful dialog!
