Depends, if there were thousands, maybe even millions of Steve Jobs out there being dicks would they all obtain the same level of success as the original?
Is there a maximum dick level or does it just continue on until it reaches super villainy levels like in Kingsman?
Also wasn't it his dickness that ultimately killed him? Instead of seeing a regular doctor he decided that following the rantings of a witch doctor were a better course of action for his cancer treatment.
I'm not sure I want to see this social experiment carried out.

I thought to be a true hipster you need to like something ironically. However, having said that, my definition is when a group of people form a temporary sub-culture
surrounding something new. (ie. vaping) I actually like 80's TV, so my downloading Emergency! is covered under nostalgia. I also like MST3K, I think that falls
under geekism nerdaphile, whatever. Other than that, my piracy comes in other forms now, far more ingenious than the primitive torrents of yesteryear.
Well, IPTV anyway.
