jobs and dylan

what do steve jobs and bob dylan have in common ? i found these people quite similar though they were born more than a decade apart and followed totally differant careers.
what dylan did to music in his 20s, jobs did to computing at the same age. they both brought creativity into their professions and unleased a new wave of change that has affected music and computing that is today. they both had a midcareer slump. dylan in early 70's ( remember "nashville skyline", "self portrait" and "new morning" ?) and jobs when he left apple and apple computers had it slump in the early 90s. then both of them revived stunningly to reaffirm their relevance to their respective professions. think of "blood on the tracks", "infidels", "time out of mind", "ipod", "macbook pro", "imac","mac mini", "mac os x".
its not surprising that steve jobs, idolised bob dylan and its believed that jobs became the lover of joan baez in large measure because baez had been the lover of dylan.

hmmm....

nice comparison.. tho can't decide if its just interesting or kinda wierd that "jobs became the lover of joan baez in large measure because baez had been the lover of dylan"
