Steve Jobs. 1955-2011
I had a post scheduled for today but wanted rather to note the passing of Steve Jobs.
Never before has one man’s vision touched so many peoples’ lives. I hope people realize through all of this that the world’s greatest entrepreneur wasn’t driven by money. He was driven by innovation. He cared not to rest on the ideas of others and was one of the rare artist’s of thought. His leadership didn’t just drive Apple to be better and more cutting edge, it drove many other companies whose role simply became to not fall too far behind.
Don’t forget it took Apple years to get where it is today. Apple persevered because Steve Jobs never lost his focus and though Apple will continue it will never be the same. And years ago when Apple let go of Steve Jobs, he created Next and led Pixar. Nobody kicked Steve Jobs when he was down.
It’s a good lesson and someday I hope it permeates our culture. Until then, I will keep using my iphone and apple computer.
A special Cheers to Steve Jobs for a life well led so we could follow.
Hello earthlings. I have been sent here to open a brewery. I hope you have time over the next year to check in from time to time and see our progress (or lack there of at times).
