Steve Jobs, 1955 – 2011
Steve Jobs died today 10-5-2011, at the age of 56.
Today we lost one of America’s technology pioneers and he will be deeply missed.
I’m sure many of you know the health issues he’s faced and are aware he recently stepped down from Apple.
His passing still came as a huge shock, somehow I expected him to always beat the odds. He was a true champion and helped shape the world as we know it. Together with the Wizard of Woz (the other Steve) they changed the future of mankind forever.
“Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs, 2005 commencement address at Stanford University
