So I tried writing last night after I had heard about the passing of Mr. Steve Jobs, but I couldn’t bring myself to it. I didn’t know what to say. Honestly, I still don’t know what to say. I’m just sad and really confused. I’m not sure why I’m sad and that’s why I’m confused. But nonetheless, I felt compelled to try to honor Mr. Jobs the best I could with a post on my blog.
I’m pretty sure that I am sad because I know that Steve was a great person and that I never got to meet him. I will never get to pick his brain, have lunch with him, or even get an email signed from his iPad. Do I ever think I would have gotten that opportunity? Probably not. But now it is definitely not.
Although I was never able to talk to Steve personally, at least I know that he can read my blog now and probably has time to. I can tell him what I would have told him had I gotten the chance to meet him.
Thank you for being inspirational and making geeks cool. Thank you for being a professional role model for myself and the rest of the industry. Thank you for playing such a big role in the development of so many great companies. Thank you for bringing the world together, if ever so briefly, with your passing. Thank you for thinking differently and helping me think different.
Hack Life. Think Different.
