At first I laughed when I saw the cover of the newly arrived Parenting on my desk last night, featuring a young boy in a faux black turtleneck, wireless glasses and the classic Steve Jobs pose. The picture accompanies the February 2012 “Genius Issue,” including tips on raising “the next Steve Jobs.”
But the more I thought about it, the more it struck me as really weird — especially when combined with the inside pictures of the same kid in another classic Steve Jobs pose, complete with the traditional blue jeans … and even the New Balance shoes!
I posted a picture of the cover on Twitter and put it up on our Facebook page, and we haven’t encountered an issue this divisive since the SOPA debate. Reactions range from people who see it as “evil” to those who don’t see anything wrong with it.
So I thought I’d open it up to the crowd here on GeekWire. What’s your take?
