Re: Steve Jobs - Walter Isaacson

Wired August 2012 has and very interesting article 'Do You Really want to be like Steve Jobs?'

I picked it primarily for personal reasons that I could relate to, but also I've just been hearing so much about Jobs, through the news, the Isaacson biography and such.

I found the article very interesting. Like a ping-pong game going from ruthless evil to successful business man. The author appears to explore all avenues. He even goes back to Isaacson who now seems to defend Jobs in everything he did. Why? I don't know. Isaacson saying Jobs family was picture perfect pretty much defies everyone else account, including Isaacson's.

In the long run, I think Job's actions are unique in achieving success. I don't think he should be a model to follow. And I certainly find him despicable as a father and family man.

Why the f uck get married and have kids if your work is more important.
