"Steve Jobs was that life-giving event, the supernova that launched a great company. Twice. But incredibly smart people, new, young visionaries in their own right, cannot long endure the overlord. In time, they must build their own planetary systems and cultures. Life goes on."
I like this bit especially:
"When a term can mean anything, it means nothing. If we insist on terms, I’d prefer the term “personal media,” as in the way we used the term, “personal computer” to differentiate it from “mainframe computer” back when personal computers first arrived on the scene. In my thinking, “social” puts too much emphasis on one specific facet of a great, big giant “shifted paradigm” — the facet being, the “group” or community interaction."
