Jobs's phenomenal success in life had come about because he understood the laws of information technology at a fundamental level. Information, does in fact live happily in the infinity of cyberspace, but alas, humans do not. This is despite an entire sci-fi genre devoted to people or their mental facilities being sucked into the matrix of a computer. It is the laws of nature that define the parameters of life, and they are finite, distressingly so.
The power and potential of information technology is so extraordinary, that it can easily mesmerize us, into believing that the laws of nature are as elastic as those of information, or even that our human-ness is at its core a matter of information. But such misperceptions are not merely in error, they can be fatally so, with the tragic, premature death of Steve Jobs to prove it.
