A moment of silence

I would be remiss if I didn’t mark this day (well, yesterday). RIP Steve Jobs. I’ve been trying to think of any person or company that has changed my world more than Apple. Their products encouraged me on my path to my current career. Their personal computer interfaces have permeated the entire market. The idea that a computer should be simple and available has shaped the planet. Their phone put the internet in my pocket, changing my world again.

His 2005 Stanford commencement speech [VIDEO] was powerful at the time, but now carries even more weight. “Stay Young. Stay Foolish.” At 56, I guess he will always remain young, but he was certainly not foolish.

Steve Jobs set an example that almost none of us will attain, but in striving we hope to make the world just a little bit better.
