Steve Jobs: 1955-2011

    5 October 2011, late afternoon

I have a soft spot in my heart for people afflicted with cancer. It’s a horrible wasting disease, and a very hard illness to outrun. Steve Jobs has passed way today from his long battle with pancreatic cancer. The world has lost a true visionary.

His commencement speech at Stanford is well worth listening to if you haven’t heard it before.

  1. Yes very sad news indeed, strange how personal it feels as well. it’s odd, I think people feel so strongly about his passing because they have such a deep connection with the products he built.People don’t just like apple, they LOVE it.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
