30 years of QNX: The first QNX video

YouTube is what, five years old? Yet it's hard to imagine the world without it. In fact, it's hard to believe that anyone bothered to create corporate or product videos before YouTube and other video-sharing services came along.

After all, once you created a video, how did you share it? How did you ensure that lots of people saw it, and not just the folks who happened to stumble upon your website?

But I digress. The point is, QNX did make a corporate video long before YouTube, more than 10 years ago. The video contains testimonials from some of the hardest hitters in the industry, including Cisco and IBM, and a lot of what was said still applies today. Check it out:

I remember being involved in the early stages of this project. Originally, we conceived the video as a series of talking heads droning on about why QNX is faster, better, more reliable, yadda, yadda, yadda. We then realized that, hey, this is a video, not a lecture. So we kept the talking heads, but adopted the faster-paced treatment you see here.

A big thanks to robbiesuperstar for posting the video.
