We live in a day and age where tech giants are often elevated to cult leader status. This isn’t any different than any other day or time. Human beings like to deify regular people for some reason (that reason eludes me but that’s just me, right?).
As modern day idol worship there is arguably none stronger than the one and only Steve Jobs. I have a feeling that 40 years from now we may be hearing of Steve Jobs ‘sightings’ like we used to from Elvis Presley fans who desperately wanted to believe that the king was not dead.
Well, when this kind of zealous following surrounds someone it generally isn’t great business to parody that person (although considering the caricature of the real person ‘today’s’ Elvis has become and the cottage industry that exists around him that’s not always true, but Steve Jobs impersonators will likely be in low demand). Don’t tell that to the folks at Funny or Die.
