Yesterday Steve Jobs appeared before 300 Vice Presidents at Yahoo! to give them a pep talk that its okay to be the company that falls once in a while. After all, Apple made a come-back and so can Yahoo!
The effectiveness and realities of Steve Jobs speeches have been questioned to the point that Guy L. “Bud” Tribble, the Vice President of Software Technology at Apple coined a term after them.
The term is reality distortion field (RDF) and it’s the idea that Steve Jobs is able to convince people to believe anything through the mix of charisma, charm, exaggeration, and marketing [Wikipedia].
What the Yahoo! VPs decide to make out of the keynote (also known as Stevenotes), is a mystery.
