This is an infographic that I found browsing the Twitter tubes during my social media managing. Made me do a forehead slap:

And the issue is that… Steve Jobs “genius” and trailblazing had nothing to do with stem. Jobs was all about marketing. Woz was the one with the technical know-how. Similarly, I can’t imagine that facebook is all that technically complex. Photobucket does similar stuff. Facebook just caught on and went. Not saying that we shouldn’t invest in these areas, just that the two first examples of technical geniuses… one of them wasn’t and the other one was but still wasn’t unique in that regard. Gates, obviously, yeah. But still struck me as funny.
