Steve Jobs & Creativity

Might be worth inviting some reflection on the life of Steve Jobs; you might argue that he fully embodied Daniel Pink’s sense of the individual most ready to succeed in our new economy: he built machines that were high concept, high touch. . . extraordinary sense of design and aesthetics and their impact on folks’ willingness to purchase. And you could also talk about him in terms of Ken Robinson’s sense of the creativity — as you’ll recall (I’m sure), “the ability to create the new in relevant context.”

    Steve Jobs is one man I greatly admire. He had an amazing life, and he impacted so many people with his creativity and brilliance. He changed the world in his garage with the invention of Apple. Thanks to him, the world saw a huge advancement in technology. I did a project on him in 11th grade, and learned a little about his personal life as well. He will be greatly missed by his wife of 20 years, four children, and his lifelong admirers. It is terrible that he was a victim of pancreatic cancer. His spirit will remain alive in every Apple product around the world. RIP Steve Jobs.

    I just watched the video and I did not know most of that about Steve Jobs and his life. I did not know that he dropped out of college only after 6 months. Too be a college drop out and to have accomplished what he has done is incredible and really inspiring. He battled cancer and fought for a long time and was still an incredible man who people highly respect. His death was terrible and had affected many people. Steve Jobs is an incredible man who will be missed dearly.
