  • Fun Faith Fact!: Jobs' design sense is greatly influenced by Buddhism.

San Francisco native Steve Jobs was a technology visionary and a fantastic leader. Jobs had an interesting life from the beginning, when he was adopted from his birth parents. His career began at Atari, during which he took a trip to India which changed his life dramatically. He returned with a shaved head and began to practice Buddhism. While he visited the oldest monastery in America, nearly taking up residence, he didn't stay that close to the religion. Still, zen influenced all parts of his life including his design work.
