Louis C.K.: “The Next Steve Jobs Will Be A Woman…” @LOUISCK

Pt 171

Louis C.K. @ Fast Company.

Overall, I think it’s a good time to have a girl in the 21st century because things are changing, with more opportunities for women. But girls are still the underdog, which means they’ll work harder, and everybody loves an underdog. The next Steve Jobs will totally be a chick, because girls are No. 2—and No. 2 always wins in America. Apple was a No. 2 company for years, and Apple embodies a lot of what have been defined as feminine traits: an emphasis on intuitive design, intellect, a strong sense of creativity, and that striving to always make the greatest version of something. Traditionally, men are more like Microsoft, where they’ll just make a fake version of what that chick made, then beat the sh*t out of her and try to intimidate everybody into using their product.

  1. Louis CK just made me like him even more. Give the men their due, but he may be right that its a girl’s turn. It isn’t some Women’s lib prerogative at work here, because honestly as a girl that isn’t what matters to me (personally). It is about where technology is heading and society changes. There is a more holistic merge of technology that is emerging. You do not need to take 4 years of school to code or build a circuit anymore and that empowers a TON of people who did not have access to this kind of thing before in a bunch of markets that did not exist.

    Many girls have a certain eye for beauty that not all guys have. Secretly, guys love those sweet little cuddly and fluffy dogs no matter how manly they try to be. Cute is cute and what can imitate natures beauty is still beautiful. When something is made to be a pleasure to use or beautiful, it gets used. It isn’t just about utility anymore. Remember, LED’s are just sequins that you can control! And who doesn’t love sparkle?
