I found out from Twitter. Only eighteen minutes after the fact, and already the onslaught of energy, those 65 and 15 who appreciated and mourned the loss of this technological giant was great.
Taken from us far too early at 56, Steve Jobs built and rebuilt Apple over the course of four decades. A visionary, a music maker, a Pied Piper of the computer world- he was someone who understood the passion of a project and the excitement of introducing the best next new thing.
Mashable mentioned that when Jobs introduced the iPad, he was smiling ear to ear. How could he not have been? His inventions continue to change and improve the way that we see the aesthetics of communication and the ways that we evolve our channels of social media. Steve Jobs if anything, has always had the best of the best of the show and tell.
He appreciated the people that built his industry; an industry that was always a dot…dot…dot. Experience was a neverending journey and Steve Jobs relished the opportunity to watch it occur. Never have I read of someone who appreciated his peers and colleagues so much. This man surrounded himself with those who loved the idea of learning and boy did it pay off.
Less than 24 hours after the unveiling of the iPhone 4s, Jobs’ death comes as a shock and a sorrowful affair. Let it be known that Cook and Jobs are two very different people. We will mourn the loss of a great leader and we will welcome with open arms what the next leg of the Apple voyage will bring. Given Jobs’ unequivocal support of Cook, I have no doubt that he will unleash great things yet to come, because he was inspired by such a visionary guy.
