reality distortion field

reality distortion field

Reality Distortion Field (RDF) is a term coined by Bud Tribble at Apple Computer in 1981, to describe company co-founder Steve Jobs’ charisma and its effects on the developers working on the Macintosh project.

Tribble said that the term came from Star Trek.

Later the term has also been used to refer to perceptions of Job’s keynote speeches (or "Stevenotes") by observers and devoted users of Apple computers and products.

The RDF was said by Andy Hertzfeld to be Steve Jobs’ ability to convince himself and others to believe almost anything with a mix of charm, charisma, bravado, hyperbole, marketing, appeasement and persistence.

RDF was said to distort an audience’s sense of proportion and scales of difficulties and made them believe that the task at hand was possible.

The Treasure Hunt

The Treasure Hunt

Keys … Check
Pirate Skull Eye Patch … Check
Blood Stain on wooden chest … Check

Alright then, it has only taken me a year to find these. They were well hidden. Stuffed in a little open box on the computer table within arms reach of where I sit every day. Finally, I am able to go on a real adventure to find the Treasure that I don’t remember what it is or where I buried it.

I really hope I didn’t bury it in the cat box again.

View with your Pirate Swords hanging from your side and saying, Aye Matey, every ten minutes.
