If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts.
And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life.
If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do.
Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college.
We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a billion company with over 4,000 employees. Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well.
We had just released our finest creation - the Macintosh -- a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down -- that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me.
