We reported last year about the long-lost time capsule from the 1983 International Design Conference in Aspen, Colorado was dug up. While the time capsule contained numerous items from the conference, the one item that was of most interest to Apple devotees is the Lisa mouse that Steve Jobs used during a speech at the gathering.
The clip actually comes from the National Geographic Program Diggers, the group that tracked down and unearthed the time capsule, which was buried as part of the conference. The large, sealed tube was originally set to be dug up in 2000, but those plans went afoul when the land where the capsule was buried changed hands.
Attendees contributed various items, name tags, a Moody Blues recording, even a six pack of Ballentine’s Beer. However, since Steve Jobs donated the Lisa mouse he’d used during his presentation at the conference, the time capsule became known as the “Steve Jobs Time Capsule”.
During Jobs’ presentation, he discussed Apple’s goals to create portable computers, wireless networking, and make email more readily available.
