brycedotvc:

Yesterday an email exchange between the late Steve Jobs and some executives at book publisher Harper Collins made the rounds. Tho most commentary, retweets and reblogs focused on Steve’s negotiating tactics, I found another aspect of the exchange equally interesting.

I had to look up the horizontal axis. As you move to the right, the “active dose” (to get a buzz or whatever you want your drug to do) approaches the lethal dose. So the active does of caffeine is 1% of the lethal dose, and the active dose of alcohol is 10% of the lethal dose.

Within four minutes, one kid not only opened the box, but found the on/off switch. He’d never seen an on/off switch. He powered it up. Within five days, they were using 47 apps per child per day. Within two weeks, they were singing ABC songs [in English] in the village. And within five months, they had hacked Android. Some idiot in our organization or in the Media Lab had disabled the camera! And they figured out it had a camera, and they hacked Android."
