Steve Jobs’s Real Genius | The New Yorker

Steve Jobs’s Real Genius : The New Yorker.

I’ve posted several stories about Steve Jobs. Well, I’m typing this on my MacBook Air while my iPhone is charging. His life had an impact on mine.

Some of the qualities I admired about Steve were his open admission to having taken LSD and how that experience shaped him (name another CEO who’s gone public with that information!), his practice of Zen, and his love of good design.

Here, Malcolm Gladwell (Blink, The Tipping Point, Outliers) writes about Jobs’ dark side — his perfectionism — and puts his gift into historical context.
