I've just finished reading a biography of Apple founder, Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson. It was a fascinating insight into a very complex individual and so it was difficult to put down. One of the insights into his personality was how much he relied on his own intuition which meant he really did "Think Different", just like the Apple advertisements proclaimed. The book doesn't shy away from Steve's mercurial personality or his mistakes at Apple and another company he founded, NeXT. It was refreshing to read about the trials and tribulations he went through, although personally, I would have liked more insight into his family life which seemed to come in at number two, after his career. All up, it was a great read. His contribution to the Digital Age can't be overstated.
About Spots and Stripes
When I began my third renovation, I swapped the corporate ladder for the rusty paint ladder and began my website and blog, Spots and Stripes, which chronicles the restoration of our 'Queenslander' in Brisbane. I'm also an interior editor helping clients to create a home which is not modern, nor traditional, rather it's interesting. For a home that is unlike any other, I can assist with the selection of lights, tiles, mirrors, wallpaper, paint, furniture and fabric.
