CEO of the Decade: Steve Jobs I consider Jobs a mentor, but from a distance. There are a rare few that seem to always know what is cool, and what would make something even cooler still. Day in and day out, year after year. Almost singlehandedly (with a huge supporting cast; how is that for a dichotomy?) Jobs saved the music industry. Not to mention Pixar and of course, Apple. The iPhone has captured market share just as he expected, when the critics all thought he was overreacting. Who could have predicted the success of the iPod? Steve. I must have three of four other "covers" around the office with his face plastered boldly from top to bottom and side to side. My favorite is still NeXTworld. You might know the NeXTstep operating system by its current name: Mac OS X. Congrats Steve. Again. Semper Fi Jeff 'SKI' Kinsey www.throughput.us/contactSKI P.S. Need a mentor (but Steve's schedule is a little too full)? Maybe I can help. www.xr.com/mentor (c)2009, Jeff 'SKI' Kinsey. All rights reserved.
