A Corporate RockStar

by on Oct.06, 2011, under Life

I’m strangely sad after learning of Steve Jobs passing. He was a true ‘rock star’, having transcended the normal role of an inventor and entrepreneur to become a social phenomenon. His vision of the future of technology became our vision, or at the very least, helped us envision the future we wanted. While I’m sure Apple will continue to come out with iPhones and products we’ll all want, I’m not at all sure they will have the same drive towards an ultimate goal. Steve Jobs wanted technology to be our friend. To amaze us, entertain us, and inform us. Ultimately I believe that he wanted it to make us smarter. (Siri may yet be his real legacy, the software to match the hardware.) He brought the word magic to the devices we use daily and the movies that we watch. No one else has done this in my lifetime. Thank you Mr. Jobs, you will be missed.
