The core creative community is very small but is also very close
— there’s been changes there, but the change isn’t perhaps as
dramatic as you might assume.
One of the values of things I learned absolutely directly from
Steve was the whole issue of focus. What are we focusing on: focus
on product. I wish I could do a better job in communicating this
truth here, which is when you really are focused on the product,
that’s not a platitude. When that truly is your reason for coming
into the studio, is just to try to make the very best product you
can, when that is exclusive of everything else, it’s remarkable
how insignificant or unimportant a lot of other stuff becomes.
Titles or organizational structures, that’s not the lens through
which we see our peers.
