This is my observation on Jobs' speech in the WWDC 05 Keynote.
Thanks Daniel for your coverage on the keynote. Reading this is as if I were there.
Jobs has made a very diplomatic presentation. Going Intel is so touchy that they have to introduce this with great care and sensitivity. The humor and cheerleading that is routine in this kind of event are markedly subdue. In place of it are lot more solemn and contemplative atmosphere. Making light joke on the bunny man on fire commercial and have the two CEOs embrace in front of the audience is a ritual for the past foes to make up. I think the ability to change without getting too entrenched or too religious is especially important for Apple to survive and to thrive.
Perhaps this can be a lesson for political adversaries too?
