Donald Knuth and Steve Jobs



It is always fascinating when two brilliant minds meet...

Steve Jobs had managed to get Donald Knuth, the legendary Stanford professor of Computer Science, to give a lunchtime lecture to the Mac team. Knuth is the author of at least a dozen books, including the massive and somewhat impenetrable trilogy "The Art of Computer Programming."

When Knuth's arrival was announced. Steve bounced out of his chair, bounded over to the door and extended a welcoming hand.

"It's a pleasure to meet you, Professor Knuth," Steve said. "I've read all of your books."

"You're full of shit," Knuth responded.

Sounds like the truth. I doubt if Jobs read all of his books and even if he did, he didn't follow the guidelines. OS X is a design mistake.
