I am tired of people worshiping blindly at the alter of Steve Jobs. I am sure he would not see it as a good thing. He was without doubt a benevolent dictator, the truth is that there is as much to learn good and bad.
He was the great visionary, but also the great tyrant. There is no question what he achieved is great, and everyone needs to take a close look at how he worked, how he did things. He may not have been following the philosophy of being a Constructive Irritant but its clear he felt that a degree of conflict , lets say irritation was a healthy thing to have in the work place. We should emulate the good but there is little point if its out of context, thus we must learn the bad also. Assuming we don’t wish to repeat the mistakes. Its the good and the bad that shows us the reality.
