Inspired by Steve Jobs

We are inspired by super-capitalist Steve Jobs. He dropped out of college. He built his company from nothing to a multi-billion dollar (sales per year) company. He suffered the public humiliation of being fired from the company he built. From the ashes he started two more companies, NeXT Computer and Pixar. When Apple bought NeXT he returned to be CEO of foundering Apple.

Then he was stunned by having pancreatic cancer and being told "to get his affairs in order." In other words, you don't have long to live.

Read or listen to/watch the video of his commencement address at Stanford University in 2005. Stanford

Question for the Wall Street protesters. Do you wish Steve Jobs had never started Apple and created the IPod and IPhone?

Question: Who did Steve Jobs hurt by being successful?
