With Steve Jobs' death, his life became news. We the public knew him as the brilliant innovator who brought us wonderful new things to marvel over and enjoy, but we weren't privy to his personal side. Now we can glimpse into his gene pool and his fifty-six years to try to see what factors contributed not only to his genius but also to the ability to confidently follow his dreams. I find people infinitely fascinating, and I like to understand them by putting together the pieces that I know about. In his case, I find it interesting and amusing that a man whose last name is Jobs created so many of them. As one obit said, he leaves behind 49,000 employees.
