Steve Jobs and the next big “intersection”

Steve Jobs and the next big “intersection”

Steve Jobs and Gov. Schwarzenegger join forces for new organ donor registry

“I just finished reading Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. It’s a well-written, elegant and balanced book and I strongly recommend reading it.

Jobs frequently mentioned two values that have always struck me as incredibly wise: First, that it is important to focus on promising technologies and bet long on those technologies. And, second, that technology alone is not enough – it’s technology married with the liberal arts that “makes our hearts sing.”

It was heartening to see, then, what Jobs thought the next big intersection might be, and I thought a quote from the book would interest Scope readers:

“One of the very few silver linings about me getting sick is that Reed’s gotten to spend a lot of time studying with some very good doctors… I think the biggest innovations of the twenty-first century will be the intersection of biology and technology. A new era is beginning, just like the digital one when I was his age.”
