Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson was a very powerful experience on so many levels. It is hard to figure out where to start. I’m just going to splat out some thoughts here.
* Pages 567 – 570 Isaacson finishes with Steve’s thoughts on his legacy. Every technology person should read these four pages. It’s very inspiring to hear Steve talk about why prioritizing products over profits works.
* I particularly liked the sections discussing his years at Next and Pixar. It was interesting to see how low those endeavours went before they rebounded into successes.
* Page 546 “Apple had 700,000 factory workers employed in China, he said”
* All thru the book
… the attention to detail … the attention to detail … the attention to detail…
prioritize ( ie kill products) … prioritize ( ie kill products) … prioritize ( ie kill products)
( This kind of process takes super human strength … WOW!!! )
