In 1983, Steve Jobs gave a speech at the International Design Conference in Aspen. The audio recording of this event surfaced in June, but it was missing an interesting Q&A session that took place after the speech.

Blogger Marcel Brown managed to obtain the entire recording, and posted it to his site on Tuesday. In it, Jobs gives some fascinating observations about the future of computing. You can listen now.
