Though I didn’t know him personally, Steve has affected how I think & create. Because of his innovation there are tools out there now that make my life simpler. Because he had the balls to do something different. Out of the box.
I admire this type of thinking because risk is a characteristic that not many people have or really live by.
It also sucks when people die (most of the time). So young. Here is my tribute in the form of a Youtube playlist which features some of the most glorious & brilliant moments in Steve Jobs’ career at Apple. I especially found his commencement speech at Stanford fascinating. It’s a great reminder that beauty can come from a broken place (listen to his story about his birth parents).
RIP Steve Jobs (1955 – 2011)
