Legacy of Steve Jobs

When you look at the news line these days – be it LinkedIn or whatever social network or technology news source you are reading, you inevitably see the new breed of articles – “something we should learn from Steve”.

It appears like different authors are using the fact of death of successful and notorious man to push their own delirium into the masses. A small example – “Steve said, that creativity is connecting things together, so that means you should make connections in social networks”. Incredibly stupid conclusion, isn’t it? And in comments to that so called article are comments like “Enlightening!” or “I’m impressed!” or “Even after his death he still teaches us!”.

The crowd is as stupid, as it’s always been.

However, among the “enlightened” by this powerful flow of bullshit, are CEOs and “entrepreneurs”, “visionaries” and “out of the box thinkers”. I guess they are also among those who skyrocketed the sales of Jobs’ biographies at Amazon.
