Desperately sad news about Steve Jobs. I can’t add anything insightful to the millions of tributes that are being shared today. But I had to post in complete respect for a man who changed everything.
This morning I tried to explain the significance of his passing to my 10 year old. He has never known a world without the technology for which Jobs was responsible. To him it’s part of the fabric of everything. When he and his brother are a bit older I will sit them down in front of the famous Stanford commencement speech. I want them to understand why Jobs was so important and I want them to live with that advice ringing in their ears: to grab life with both hands, to jump into it, to not waste precious time doing something they’re not passionate about.
He gave us so much more than tech.
