[1] Valleywag, quoted by Daniel Eran Dilger, "Apple's Tim Cook Profiled as Most Powerful Gay Man in Silicon Valley", Apple Insider, 20 January 2011: "Cook's rise to his position -- he is one of the most powerful corporate executives in the world, to say nothing of being the most powerful gay person in tech by a mile -- is also a tribute to his skill and work ethic on the one hand, and to the utterly unconventional and unconventionally empowering people skills of Jobs on the other." Cook publicly came out in an essay for Bloomberg Businessweek, 30 October 2014: "While I have never denied my sexuality, I havenít publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: Iím proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."
