The world is mourning the loss of a great man. I just hope that his great vision has not been lost as well. Steve lived his dreams. He was never content and continually pushed the boundaries of technology. His quest for perfection led to unparalleled products and user experiences. Perhaps it is best said of him what was said back in 1997:
Here’s to the crazy one. The misfit. The rebel. The trouble-maker. The Square peg in the round holes. The one who saw things differently. He wasn’t fond of rules, and he had no respect for the status quo. You can quote him, disagree with him, glorify, or vilify him. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore him. Because he changed things. He pushed the human race forward. And while some may see him as the crazy one, we see genius. Because he was crazy enough to think he could change the world, and he did!
Thank you for everything Steve Jobs. Because of you I have a job I love. The technology you developed has made life better and the world more connected. Through your example, others have strived to push their limits, including me. Rest in peace Steve and may God watch over your family.
