Several historical depictions of Steve Jobs  have recently been unearthed, giving us a visual glimpse of the man who came to helm one of Silicon Valley's most influential companies.
Though Jobs may be known as the suave and articulate emcee of many Apple events, he was not born to be in front of the camera. Moments before this early television appearance , he's clearly not ready to become a media star.
Later, he became more comfortable being recorded on film, as demonstrated by this excerpt  from the 1998 documentary Silicon Valley: A 100 Year Renaissance , which is still available  from the Santa Clara Valley Historical Association . After hearing Woz  speak on this illicit subject so many times, it's a pleasant change to hear his more severe counterpart acknowledge the company's origins.
Finally, there's this AP photo  that shows a rather hirsute Jobs sporting a tie and an extra-large Apple II.
With Jobs currently on medical leave, it's interesting to see how far he's come — and how far we hope he still has to go.
