Election Special: The Fake Steve Jobs

I love Fake Steve Jobs. He's the funniest valley blogger out there (it helps that he's not bound by reality), and he really seems like he could be Steve Jobs.

Fake Steve had a great election post--I'll simply share with you my favorite line:

Can you imagine if companies were run like our government? If they were just cults of personality? Can you imagine a world where someone with no experience in finance, business or engineering could become CEO of a huge publicly traded corporation just because they're charismatic, look good on stage and know how to stab people in the back. It makes me shiver when I think about it.

Indeed.

On a more serious note, I don't believe in the autocratic style many companies adopt--it is important that all members of an organization feel engaged. But perhaps a market-based system would be superior to a vote-based system.
