We have not truly celebrated entrepreneurs since the generation of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison – entrepreneurs got respect, awards, sometimes biographies but never the attention of top athletes or celebrities. Steve Jobs has changed this – he became a mass media phenomenon with a deep impact beyond the technology circles. I hope that many thousands of kids and teenagers from around the world now have a new role model and got inspired to become entrepreneurs trying to change the world.
This might be Steve Jobs’ greatest legacy. RIP.
