Interview with Stewart Cheifet (The Computer Chronicles)

Back in 2017, I had the chance to chat with Stewart Cheifet for about an hour.

The Stewart Cheifet. Host of The Computer Chronicles — the legendary TV show of the 1980s and 1990s that, as the name suggests, chronicled the rise of the personal computer.

This show was a huge inspiration for me. Stewart — along with his co-host, the late, great, Gary Kildall — were childhood heroes of mine. Heck. They still are.

During this hour, Stewart and I talked about his work on the show, his co-host (the amazing Gary Kildall), Steve Jobs, privacy, and a whole lot of other awesome things.
