    This is a pretty interesting look at how much of a role Steve Job's zendo in his life. There's also some interesting portions about the practice of Zen Buddhism in America's budding Silicon Valley.

    What I do know about Zen is that it strengthens the power to focus, and to focus with clarity.
    Could his concept of "windows" have been a post meditation vision, or intution, a level above basic inventive creativity, like Niels Bohr's vision of the electrons revolving around the nucleus of the atom?
