Steve Jobs on entrepreneurs
I hate it when people call themselves entrepreneurs when what they’re really trying to do is launch a startup and then sell or go public, so they can cash in and move on. They’re unwilling to do the work it takes to build a real company, which is the hardest work in business. That’s how you really make a contribution and add to the legacy of those who went before. You build a company that will still stand for something a generation or two from now. That’s what Walt Disney did, and Hewlett and Packard, and the people who built Intel. They created a company to last, not just to make money. That's what I want Apple to be.

Call me a technologist or whatever you choose. I’m a conversation starter with a deep routed idea of technology for the better. I’m confronting at times and I’m peaceful without smoking a joint.
