Interview with Jawbone’s Hosain Rahman

A fascinating interview–not the usual corporate oatmeal–with the founder/CEO of Jawbone (the UP fitness tracker) from the early days of engineering at Stanford University, thinking about user interfaces back in the 1990s (!) with Palm Pilots and the start of Jawbone in his brother’s house which first developed noise-canceling back-of-the-ear or on the jaw headsets. The headsets led to accelerometers…and then to UP. It’s also a chronicle of an engineer who naturally segued to being an entrepreneur, and the challenges of partnering and manufacturing without getting your IP stolen. Video is 48:16, so set aside some time.
