Steve in the 100 most influential people


Last week, while I was coming back home from a leisure trip, I was reading “The 100 most influential people in the world” from the Time.

In the Thinkers category, there were Steve Jobs presented by some text rows from Jeff Koons (an artist based in New York City), here there is his words:

Apple’s core ideal always been to make people’s experience of computing as accessible as possible. As a young man, Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, decided to be the Beatles of computing. I once said that I make what the Beatles would have made if they made sculpture, and I can appreciate how Steve, 55, applies ethos of optimism to his work.The tools he has given us, from the Macs at my studio to the iPhone in my pocket, are like clean, new windows, fitting between our selves and our work elegantly, naturally and unobtrusively.

It is great to see Steve stay true to his vision. I can imagine some young artist saying today, “I make what Steve Jobs would make if he made a sculpture.”
