Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011

What can be said that hasn’t been said already. It’s tragic that he died at such a young age and the first thought that went through my head when I heard about him passing away was… He can’t die yet, he still has so much to do!

To be alive and experience what Steve Jobs has done for the world first hand has been pretty amazing and it gives me chills to sit here and look at my desk, staring at all the products he has created that have enabled me to do what I do and help me create a life for my self that I love. Steve Jobs will be deeply missed and his effect on the world, not just with technology, but with his design sensibility and taste will last forever.

The internet is going to be filled with Steve Jobs related stories for the next while, but a few that I have really enjoyed so far have been a full documentary posted on Wanken, an interactive timeline from New York Times, and a video timeline from CNN.

    Steve Jobs is kind of like Tony Stark….. just not an alcoholic womanizing bad ass

  2. Jason Dakins says:

    He was a true visionary, rarely does one man have such an impact on the everyday lives of so many people.

  3. Pundit says:

    In all honesty I think his contribution to the world is kind of shallow. His legacy is one of selling overpriced gadgets to the masses, but noone has done it quite as good as he did. A genius in his own right for sure.

    I wasn’t alive of course when Kelly Johnson was (designer of the SR-71 and U2 planes) so I’m very glad I have been while Steve Jobs lived, and got to see what he’d bring us next. He changed the game: computers might still be something you just have in a lab or business office without this man.
