Wikipedia entries for K & R and Steve Jobs

Wikipedia entries for Dennis Ritchie [C and Unix creator], Ken Thompson [Unix creator], Brian Kernighan [worked with K & R during Unix creation] and Stuart Feldman [make creator] put together is just 1/5 or probably 1/10 of the Wikipedia entry for Steve Jobs. This is definitely nothing against Steve. He is a great visionary. But, he is a product guy who visualized the product, the actual hard work was done by so many unknown Engineers. We have come to accept and approve narcissists more than great creators and excellent human beings whose work changed the fate and direction of the world. This is not a good sign for the new generations and needs a change.
