Spiegel has a portrait of Jobs hanging in his office.

The Snapping Point

Bizarre isn’t it. This article seeks to establish weak parallels between the co-founder of Snapchat and Steve Jobs. It does so by highlighting that Spiegel has a portrait of Jobs hanging in his office and has an apparently annoying tendency to micro-manage. Presumably this is to give us a sense of confidence in his leadership ability.

I haven’t checked but I’m betting Jobs didn’t hang the portrait of some other technology visionary on his wall, nor seek to have this mentioned in the press.

Let me know what you think on Twitter
