Steve Jobs Was Like Thomas Edison, Says Ben Horowitz

Was Steve Jobs more like Thomas Edison or more like Walt Disney? So far, most people seem to think Edison is the better metaphor. 

"People have compared him to Thomas Edison and I think that's right." Steve Jobs Was Like Thomas Edison 

Personally, I prefer Disney. Edison was a prodigious inventor. But Disney was all about delighting people with experiences. 

The "Magic Kingdom" somehow feels more like something Steve Jobs was obsessive about. 

And if you know anything about how Disney runs its theme parks, you know they are obsessive about illusion and immersion in an experience.
