Chrisann Brennan, author of The Bite in the Apple, and mother of Steve Jobs’ daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs, recently gave an “At Google” talk about her memoir of her life with Jobs.

Here’s a description of the book via YouTube:

The Bite in the Apple is the very human tale of Jobs’s ascent and the toll it took, told from the author’s unique perspective as his first girlfriend, co-parent, friend, and—like many others—object of his cruelty. Brennan writes with depth and breadth, and she doesn’t buy into all the hype. She talks with passion about an idealistic young man who was driven to change the world, about a young father who denied his own child, and about a man who mistook power for love. Chrisann Brennan’s intimate memoir provides the reader with a human dimension to Jobs’ myth. Finally, a book that reveals a more real Steve Jobs.

    It seems like what she’s talking about is not something a computer can actually do. What she’s talking about sounds ancient and like something we’ve forgotten about, but need to remember. I don’t imagine a machine can integrate us energetically. That belongs to us as humans on this planet to achieve, without machines. I appreciate that she thinks so well of our machines that they could actually do things that we need to do on our own. “We are all ‘royalty’ all musicians all poets, we have only to open up to discover what is already there.” Now the computer can certainly help us with this, but can it help us integrate with our spiritual selves? No, nature does that, contemplation does that, dreaming does that, actual hands on paint to paper, or moving in dance or fingers on strings, does that. The machine takes the muse away. Can you at Google help us integrate energetically? I challenge you.
