Jobs is a hippie?

I just watched a program on the history channel called hippies. It talks about jobs being a hippie. It said the most powerfuly influence hippies had on the world was technology. Introduced of course by Jobs. Theyalso mentioned Stewart brand as being a huge hippie. Sorry I just thought I would mention this as it kinda caught me off guard.

We were all hippies in those days, or we wanted to be.

There was a show about Jobs and Gates, and yep, Jobs was a hippie, and Gates was always a geek. Now look at 'em!

Here is a quote from Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jobs

"Jobs then backpacked around India with a Reed College friend (and, later, first Apple employee), Daniel Kottke, in search of philosophical enlightenment. He came back with his head shaved and wearing traditional Indian clothing. During this time, Jobs experimented with LSD, calling these experiences "one of the two or three most important things he has done in his life."[16] He has stated that people around him who did not share his countercultural roots could not understand certain aspects of his thinking.[16]

The only reason it sounds weird is because nature & bathing in the river is like the opposite of technology & computers. Too bad, if the hippies would of won we wouldn't be in this B.S. war right now or having all our iPhone calls, sms, email recorded and monitored.

I rather doubt that Steve Jobs was a hippie. It was Steve Wozniak that tried to hang with the hippies. Eventially the hippies rejected Steve Wozniak, because they distrusted him as he would not do drugs with them. I've also heard that it was Wozniak who travel around the world and he had also start a couple of concert (known as the U.S festival) in which he lost over $12 million. It was Wozniak that was the true inventer at Apple. Wozniak was the one who engineered the Apple I and Apple II before going into businesss with Steve Jobs. Later Wozniak left Apple to start working on a Universal Remote called the CL 9.

If I recall correctly, several of those "hippies" went on to Wall Street to make a living...
