Video: iPad Impressions From John Doerr, David Carr & Josh Quittner

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.

    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!

  2. 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.
