This is a revolution

  • Johannes Gutenberg invented mechanical movable type printing in Europe.
  • Gutenberg never became rich after his invention.
  • He died in poverty, unknown of his contemporaries
  • Reputation of a man who revolutionized the knowledge democratization can be zero
  • Steve Jobs has often been described as visionary. We must not forget that it was not alone
  • Thus, it was Steve Wosniak, Apple co-founder, who designed the Apple II, the first personal computer sold on a large scale (1977)
  • The invention of Lisa and Macintosh (1983) is considered by some as a result of the largest industrial theft in history (the victim being Xerox)
  • “Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.” (Barack Obama)
  • His fortune was estimated by Forbes at seven billion USD

 

  • The reputation of a man who revolutionized the knowledge democratization can be considerable
