Excellent article on Jobs history with Apple, both the good and the bad.\nAnd a reasonably neutral view of the man himself, neither hero or goat,\nbut a very flawed visionary.\n\n[url]http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/08/the-end-of-inno/[/url]\n\nThe final paragraph sums the man up well.\n\n"The lesson of Jobs’s ouster and redemption is twofold. First, never\ncount anyone out — certainly not anyone as determined and intelligent as\nJobs. In pulling off one of the greatest second acts in American\nbusiness, he has not merely confounded his critics, he has induced mass\namnesia. Second, savor authenticity. The Jobs who led the Macintosh crew\nin 1984 was self-centered, imperious, arrogant, unyielding, and flawed\nin myriad other ways — but more importantly, he had genuine passion and\nthe crucial ability to instill it in others. This made him far more\ncompelling and ultimately more successful than the string of\nglossy-tongued managers who followed. Rough edges, it turns out, are\nthere for a reason."
