Steve Jobs 1955-2011
Steve Jobs wasn’t a geek’s geek. Rather he was one of the few in the industry who understood that computer technology was most useful when it touched our humanity, and empowered ‘the rest of us’ to do things we otherwise could not have done. Perhaps more than anyone, he ushered in an era when the personal computer became the pen and paper of my generation. Every creative endeavour of my adult life has involved an Apple Computer – and I suspect I’m not alone.
Thanks. And rest in peace.
