outliers

Today is the first anniversary of the death of Steve Jobs. This morning I visited the Apple homepage, knowing they'd have a tribute posted. They do. It is moving. Check it out.

People like Steve are outliers. They come along occasionally, a product of their own characteristics, good timing, and circumstance.* And they change the world. They are fascinating people to be around.

* - For those interested in one theory about what creates outliers, I recommend Outliers: The Story of Success (non-paid link).  It is a fascinating book.
