RIP Steve Jobs. We Will Miss You.

 

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.

Steve Jobs brought to the world a great idea. And a great idea will live forever. Long live, Steve, and thank you.

“Here’s to the crazy ones…you can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.”

From AppleInsider:

The passing of Jobs was announced on Wednesday by Apple. The company has encouraged “thoughts, memories, and condolences” to be sent to [email protected].

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being,” the company said in a statement. “Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

  1. To my knowledge, Steve Jobs was far and away the greatest visionary-genius during my lifetime.

    Some Nobel prize winning scientist may have done some things that will have a greater impact on our lives long term, but I don’t know who that might be.

      I agree Eric. I can’t think of anyone else that even comes close to creating things that changed my life in as many ways as he did. Directly because of what he did at Apple, I was able to be more creative, learn computer technology without fear, get better jobs, connect with more people, be more productive. Because of Apple technology, I no longer felt lost in the world — both literally because of the maps on my iphone, and figuratively because of the way his products helped me navigate through waves of information.

      From a very deep, very personal level, I can’t say enough about what a hero and an inspiration he was, and how much I will miss him.

  2. My father, who could play any musical instrument and lead world-class military marching bands the world over, but who could not remember which end of a screwdriver was the working end and who could not program the clock on a VCR no matter how many times he was shown, my father owned and used a Macintosh personal computer. He printed papers and pamphlets, edited and assembled presentations and research projects, basically ran a desktop publishing business out of his little home office, for free, for college students and church members. On a Mac.

    I miss Steve Jobs already. Almost as much as I miss Jim Henson.

    Rest in peace, Steve. Or, hang around and whisper inspiration and encouragement into the physical ears of those of us dreamers who remain. Whatever makes you happy.
