Yesterday we lost an iconic figure in Steve Jobs. He lost a battle with cancer and passed away at the young age of 56. In Steve’s 56 years on planet earth, he changed the world from a technology perspective in unimaginable ways. Steve Jobs’ contributions through Apple and Pixar have brought us light years ahead in the desktop computing and animated movie industries. He has lived 150 years’ worth in 56 short years.
As Steve Jobs said in his commencement speech at Stanford University in 2005, death is the best invention of life. It clears away the old to make room for the new. Hopefully Steve’s passing will make room for the new and his legacy will live on forever.
Steve, you will be sorely missed. Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
