Jobs among America\'s best

Steve Jobs has been . The latest issue of US News & World Report, which focuses on the accomplished group selected by an independent committee of judges assembled by the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. The report says that Jobs has been a commercial innovator, cultural inspiration, and entrepreneurial icon for nearly 30 years: "He's an iconoclast who has enhanced our society's digital self-image...Jobs's passionate perfectionism, a contradictory blend of hot temper and cool temperament, is embedded in the soul of many new machines--iMacs, iBooks, iPods--and he has almost single-handedly altered the way we compute, play music, and view video."

"Jobs himself has been labeled a saint, a sinner, and now a saint again. A college dropout, he inspired a generation of rebellious start-ups, was cast out of his own company at 30, and then wandered in the wilderness until it was time to come home and rescue his business as a creative crusader."

    Bill Gates made the list with his wife for their work with their foundation (admirable) but Steve Ballmer (aka Uncle Fester) didn't make the list at all. I'm glad someone else recognizes that Ballmer isn't leading the company anywhere good.
