Steve Jobs didn't just sign the guide. Julian told Brewer, “Julian, your generation is the first to grow up with computers. Go change the world! Steven Jobs also left the note "1980".
Brewer recalls this event: “I was sitting in my bedroom writing games on the Apple 2 when my father called me to meet the guests. Surprisingly, the guests were Jobs and Mike Markkula. The guide was with me. Only later did I realize how rare it was for Jobs to sign anything, let alone write such a piece. He gets along well with my father, so I feel like it was written with care.”
