All Things Digital‘s Kara Swisher, who carried a digital camcorder to Apple’s (AAPL) iPad event for her BoomTown blog, has posted some rare footage of Steve Jobs in the crush of  reporters at the foot of the stage after his presentation Wednesday.

It’s framed as a kind of Walt Mossberg sandwich, with slices of the Wall Street Journal‘s chief tech columnist on either end.

Let’s go to the video:
