Link: Steve Jobs: A Tough Act to Follow

I’m not terribly interested in most of the stories speculating about Steve Jobs’ health or the company’s outlook — do you really think Steve designed the Cocoa APIs or wrote the iPhone’s power management software — but I do think one valuable analogy you can make is to how Disney at first stumbled but later pressed on without its hands-on namesake founder.

Jim Hill Media contributor and long-time Disney artist Floyd Norman is in a unique position to make this comparison: he worked for Disney on The Jungle Book, and later for Jobs at Pixar. So I’m highly willing to listen to his take on how the two stories played out. Plus, his sketches of Jobs are a hoot: Steve Jobs: A Tough Act to Follow.
