Steve Jobs and Immortal American Entrepreneurs

Steve Jobs and Immortal American Entrepreneurs

Steve Jobs passed away yesterday, October 6, 2011. He joins a small group of immortals – one of the greatest American entrepreneurs of all time. Here’s my list, and it is American because there’s never been another country and system that supported innovation and creativity like American capitalism. The list of immortals:

Benjamin Franklin
Thomas Edison
Henry Ford
Walt Disney
Steve Jobs

This is a focus on world-changing innovation. The creative genius that can conceive is wonderful and produces great works of art. Steve was able to not only create but accomplish revolutions in technology, design, media, music and commerce. He will be missed.
