Nice mini-site from Alvy Ray Smith, one of the cofounders of Pixar, debunking a lot of the myths about Steve Jobs' involvement in the company.
TLDR; he was a very useful investor for them but the idea that his "vision" shaped the company is incorrect. Around the time Toy Story was poised to be a hit, he positioned himself to *look* like a visionary.
@darius this is so fascinating! and for some reason I did not know that "Catmull" of Catmull-Rom spline fame was a co-founder of Pixar, that's wild?!
@darius @aparrish worth watching the full short film here! https://www.openculture.com/2011/09/first_3d_digital_film.html
