  • Steve Jobs Highlighted by Wired Magazine


    Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs seems to be the topic of Wired’s August cover story, as the publication investigates how the tech guru’s management style affects industry leaders.

    The title of the featured story is “Am I Steve Jobs” and it offers lessons to be learned by the late Apple CEO’s management style. It tends to heavily refer to samples from Walter Isaacson’s official biography “Steve Jobs,” along with the inclusion of interviews with entrepreneurs and CEOs in the technology industry. Despite having lost the battle with pancreatic cancer in October of 2011, the legacy left by Jobs is still one that heavily impacts the tech community as his innovative and rather aggressive leadership tactics continue to spark discussion.

    Walter Isaacson noted that Facebook’s chief Mark Zuckerberg modeled his early management style after Jobs according to a recent interview. Zuckerberg reportedly looked up to Jobs and even had a number of both private and professional interactions with him as Facebook began to turn into a more prominent network in today’s social media. Zuckerberg isn’t the only one though as Jobs’ effective management style continues to influence many in today’s world.

      Oh I hope Steve jobs a kissers don't come here

      If you really knew anything about him he had a unique personality and he wasn't perfect sure he was a visionary and helped create the tech world we now know. But As a young adult he was dumb and stupid (we all were) and he still made mistakes in his late years.

      Reading what I have about him he really seemed like a bit of an asshat. Sure he had his hand in a lot of really great ideas but that doesn't mean you can be a douche to people.

      the benefit of reading about successful people is to learn how they overcame their shortcomings, the things they did right. if we put things in perspective, there's much to be gained from the visionary who spearheaded the world's largest tech company.

      I agree that all people do mistakes but such biographies are to learn about the good side of such talented people not the bad side
      You can't find someone like Steve jobs frequently

      A genius...really. That is either a self proclaimed title or people have no idea what a genius really is. Frankly, he was nothing but a douche bag.
