It came too soon.
We’ve known for a long time now that Steve Jobs has been in failing health, but in the years since he went public with his illness, we’ve seen the iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air, Mac mini and even more, all coming from his ideas. He never let his medical issues slow him down, even though a lesser man may have given up and decided to live out their days on a beach somewhere, waiting to die.
That wasn’t him, and that’s not the man we’ll remember.
I’ve always admired Steve Jobs and his vision for the world, and always found him to be a fascinating man. It’s no exaggeration to say that I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for his contribution to society. It was just August that we said goodbye to him as the CEO of Apple, and I feel it’s appropriate today to link to the post I wrote on that day now. We’ll never get Steve back, but we’ll also never forget his legacy.
