Foremski: After Jobs, a short bench in Silicon Valley

Friday, August 26, 2011

imageTom Foremski at Silicon Valley Watcher blogs that he wasn’t initially impressed with Steve Jobs when he used to meet with him in the 1980s, but changed his mind soon enough. Now the veteran tech journo sees Jobs’ resignation as leaving not just a gaping void at Apple, but in Silicon Valley generally:

While it's unlikely that Silicon Valley can produce another Steve Jobs we should by now have quite a few new leaders. But where are the Larry Ellisons, Scott McNealys, Andy Groves, Bill Gates, etc?

We have Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg, Max Levchin... Maybe. Time will tell as it did with Steve Jobs but it seems to me that there's a very small pool of potential standout leaders compared with 20 years ago.
