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 Den

The Den

The We’re Here gang are showing our work spaces today for In My Room. Excuse the dust, this room collects it faster than any other room in the house. The chair is empty because I just got back from a long bicycle ride, hadn’t showered yet, and some days I just don’t feel like being in the photo.

Bombay Beach, CA. Zilladon and I went exploring around the Salton Sea.

Did you spot the people in the background? Never been here without encountering other photographers.
