Who Is Steve Jobs?

Anil Dash brilliantly arguing against the "falsehood that liberal values are somehow in contradiction with business success", describing the leader of the most valuable technology in the world, describing Steve Jobs.

He's the anchor baby of an activist Arab muslim who came to the U.S. on a student visa and had a child out of wedlock. He's a non-Christian, arugula-eating, drug-using follower of unabashedly old-fashioned liberal teachings from the hippies and folk music stars of the 60s. And he believes in science, in things that science can demonstrate like climate change and Pi having a value more specific than "3", and in extending responsible benefits to his employees while encouraging his company to lead by being environmentally responsible.

Every single person who'd attack Steve Jobs on any of these grounds is, demonstrably, worse at business than Jobs.

So good. More here.
