When fans worship people like Elon Musk and Steve Jobs and aspire to be like them, they’re not saying that they’d like to make a device that the world uses.

I have both my Senators and my representative on speed dial and call all 3 at least weekly, yet they have voted contrary to my pleas on every occasion. The worst part is the absolute apathy among my family.
