  • Visionaries like Steve Jobs reveal the true secret to the Universe in that nothing is impossible with time, perseverance, and positive visualization. Such a passion for furthering human communication inspires. His legacy will survive generations with names like Edison, Tesla as the greatest inventors and visionaries of all time. As an artist, I draw from these inspirations and advancements in my work and you may enjoy my recent portrait of Mr. Jobs, now In Memoriam at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/08/end-of-era-steve-jobs.html

  • A nice comparison. In this context, a must read iDolatry — obituary for a capitalist revolutionary by Jérôme E. Roos: http://bit.ly/qD2uC2 (follow him on twitter: http://twitter.com/jeromeroos)
