Indie work: comparison of Shai Agassi and Steve Jobs

Shai Agassi
Originally uploaded by Wa-J
Shai Agassi is the Israeli with the plan to make Israel into a nation where the mass of men drive electric cars - and where there are electrical filling stations across the country. It is called Project Better Place.

Steve Jobs is a hero of American technology; his company created the iPod, iMac and iPhone. Though facing health issues today, he has won fame as the successful founder and leader of Apple Computers.

Compare and synthesize their stories.

Flash: in reading the Jobs bio in Wikiepdia I found he was adopted by the Jobs family. But he knows his parents and evidently they are a woman of Jewish background and an Arab fellow, Joanne Carole Schieble and Abdulfattah Jandali.
