Today our generation is suffering the loss of one of our own. At 56, Steve Jobs is gone too soon! I have read a lot about Steve and have watched (particularly in the last two years) the unique way in which he lived and ran his company.
I have heard him tell the story about the education he received after leaving college. I have heard him tell the graduating class at Stanford to never settle. I have seen the gleam in his eye as he described new functions/products in his keynote addresses. He has been an inspiration to me and knowing that I will not hear any new things from him makes me very sad.
The most important thing that I ever heard said of him was when said that he wanted to make a dent in the universe. He certainly did that and I for one am inspired to follow suit. We have suffered a great loss, but as Steve said, death is the greatest innovation. It clears out the old and makes place for the new. I can’t wait to see who steps up and accepts the challenge of greatness in the next generation.
Goodbye Steve, you represent the greatness of our generation and those of us remaining here want to represent like you did in these most difficult times!
