two years ago (October 5, 2011), Steve Jobs left us at the age of 56. One of the symbolic figures of our digital age, the inventor of the iconic interface, the iPod, the iPad iPhone and countless other devices that have changed our lives, including the mouse (not invented by him but that he helped spread ). In his career Jobs has never talked about his interviews, his interventions have always been focused on technology, on products. An icon, a genius, a businessman, but above all a person who saw the future more clearly than the others. He left us a lot, not only in terms of products, but also many teachings. We all remember his great successes, but we should look more at how he managed to recover from the difficulties. No advantaged party: born of a Swiss mother (Joanne Carole Schieble) and a Syrian father (Abdulfattah "John" Jandali, a student who would become more late professor of political science), Steve was not raised by his natural parents, but was given adopted newly born by Paul (mechanic) and Clara Jobs (accountant). Steve Jobs did not graduate, in 1972 Jobs graduated from the Homestead Institute in Cupertino. He enrolled at the university (Reed College in Portland) but quit his studies after just six months, wanted to work and we know what he achieved. And what did he teach us? Many things. Perhaps his greatest teaching felt the connection between art and science, technology. According to Jobs the true innovations, those destined to last over time are those able to unite art and science. This is one of the features that has always distinguished Apple. The team that created the first Mac was made up of people who had a humanistic background: anthropology, art, history and poetry. Jobs was convinced that art culture gives a soul and not just a form to products. Certainly not easy, especially in the high-tech world, combining these two worlds, but the one that makes the difference at the end. After all, what is the iPad? What is so different from other tablets? It has an extra breath, a soul that other products do not have. To succeed in this magic you must not be afraid of trying and failing, making mistakes is part of the process, another great teaching that Jobs has not only declaimed has applied at any time.
