RIP Steve Jobs

The Tech World has lost a visionary and a genius….Words fail to describe this man. I am not going to describe him or give his biography (all of that and more  including rare pictures are overflowing on the web) or write more that just a few lines.

Steve Jobs …you will be greatly missed. My heartfelt condolences to Family, Friends and all at Apple.

from his 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University:

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything—all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure—these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. 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.”
