      Wonderful breakdown of some innovation happening outside of Apple to augment Apple's capabilities in the App Store, by the creation of an outside source "Alt-Store" by an Apple super fan. Mix of Steve Jobs nostalgia and also hope for a world where there is more than 1 app store, which may just lead Apple to be better off in the long-term.

      "Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

      Fascinating. Like reading a foreign language. So not my world but was curious enough to read about it.
