I didn’t know the man, but acknowledge that he was a great man. He has touched so many and will certainly be missed by many. He had tremendous insight, an incredible drive and a genuine love of technology. One can only be inspired by his business and work ethic. If I could say one thing to him it would be – ‘Thank you Steve Jobs for everything that you achieved and in doing so making the world a much better place. The impact of your vision has been felt by us all and the memory of you will be cherished. We will miss you, we being the entire world.’

I appreciate your post and your taking the time to share it. Thanks

It would stand to reason that given how Mr. Jobs has changed the world and our individual and collective experiences of technology and media, Im sure the more proximate to Mr. Jobs one is, the more intense the experience.

Mr. Job’s accomplished what few have (major corporate turnaround) and from particularly destitute circumstances. (As an Apple developer and consultant in Amelio’s time and prior, I still recall well the turbulent travesty of those few years mid 90s, more in market strategy than actual product.) Apple had by then failed several times at a modern OS, including with IBM and Motorola as partners for one attempt. Apple’s products though were very well made with very strong consumer satisfaction.

While away form Apple, Mr. Job’s “vision” was embodied in NeXT: its’ cube and OS, the latter of which we all use today in its polished and updated form. It was considered by universities, scientists, and industries to be the world’s most advanced OS at the time, before Apple bought it. Under Mr. Job’s vision, it continues as the same. However, now, it has earned market success and that adoption underscores that prominence.

More recently, we need only look at what we had for phones before the iPhone. Or the portable computer before the iPad. In the first case, Apple had no experience in the mobile handset market and entered a very mature, aggressive industry and reshaped it overnight.

Mr. Job’s certainly has contributed a remarkable vision. Along with that, I postulate his core business skills, particularly in responding to markets in real-time, is under appreciated.

Thanks for letting me share my personal thoughts. Enjoyed your post! “Be excellent to each other.”
