The world of technology has a lot of great characters to look up to, people who provide you with great inspiration to succeed and innovate.
The person I admire the most in this field is Steve Jobs. I see him as one of the most influential people in the promotion of technology and its generalized use.
Steve was an inventor, designer, and entrepreneur who founded Apple Inc. The products developed directly under his supervision dictated the new standards that technology companies use today and caused a revolution world wide. Steve was truly a perfectionist to the point people who worked with him said that it was challenging and even stressful sometimes to be part of his team. But when success came, all the hard work paid off.
I am a hardcore movie fan so one of the things that I admire the most about Steve is that when he believed that the movie creation process using computers could have a great future, he put a lot of his time and energy in founding Pixar Animation Studios, which later on produced some of the most iconic animated movies today. Once more, he was a revolutionary who contributed to change the way big movie studios did things.
I admire Steve not only because he excelled at what he did but also because he has inspired a lot of people and even whole industries to do things differently, always put themselves in the place of the customer, and think of ways to make life easier with the support of technology.
