During this month of downgrades, hurricanes and political failures, it has been uplifting to focus on the remarkable career of Steve Jobs. Here is a man who embodies the virtues we would like young people to emulate. His vision, persistence, devotion to excellence, risk tolerance and ability to thrive on failure are assets in business and in life. His commitment to breaking down boundaries between science and art and between different industries has freed all of us from many hidebound and constraining commercial practices. I think his most important contribution though has been the way he had unleashed the productivity of so many other people, knocking down barriers to creativity for people the world over. There are many people out there who make fine products, but only a rare few who put tools in your hands that magnify your own productivity. I say, Steve Jobs for sainthood!
