Steve Jobs, Pop!Tech 2011, and Compassion
Huffington Post - 10/26/2011
Steve Jobs was often criticized for his apparent lack of compassion. He was not known for making generous philanthropic donations to worthy causes. The 2006 article in Wired magazine expressed this feeling in the commentary titled “Jobs vs. Gates: Who’s the Star?”. Eyebrows were raised because for a number of years Steve Jobs had denied child support payments to his out-of-wedlock daughter. Steve Jobs was known for innovation, creativity, style, inspiration, and for revolutionizing the way the world communicates, but he was not particularly applauded for compassion and philanthropy.
