mattnyc99 writes: Tom Junod, the great Esquire writer who penned that famous Steve Jobs profile a couple years back, is back with a new story on John Lasseter, Pixar, and how CGI movies turn good boys into men.

From the article: The building in Emeryville is, in Lasseter's words, "Steve Jobs's movie." Jobs not only designed it; he designed it so that people inside it would behave a certain way. "Steve really believes in the accidental meeting," Lasseter says, and to that end he designed the building around a cathedral-like atrium, which is also where he located all the bathrooms and the subsidized company commissary. "Steve really believes that it's important to have great food," Lasseter says.
