I have been surprised that even many otherwise sane Catholics joined in the cult-like worship of Steve Jobs, whose achievements, as impressive as they were, were strictly in the material realm (and indeed intensely so). The worship of Steve Jobs is tied up of course with the worship of technology. For Steve Jobs was, as my wife dubbed him, "the god of gadgets."

Thank you for this post (as well as the other post on Steve Jobs). I think we should see Steve Jobs for what he is: a highly accomplished human being, but a human being nonetheless.

I'll repeat here what I've said elsewhere: The day will come when Richard Stallman will die. He will not be lionized by the media. He will not leave behind a billion-dollar legacy. There will not be stories of silly consumers who think that he was a member of their family. Yet Richard Stallman did more for computing than did Steve Jobs.
