In memoriam: Steve Jobs

The news of Steve Jobs’ passing really hit me, in an unusually strong way.  I don’t know if it is because he was only 56 years old, or that he was such a business icon, or that he transformed the way people live and created so much financial value and so much enjoyment for so many. Or maybe it was that in a strange way many of us felt like he was part of our extended family, as his persona and accomplishments have certainly captured our imagination and attention.  He was a courageous fighter, against pancreatic cancer, for innovation, for positive change, for excellence, and for beauty.

Here is a link to his Commencement speech at Stanford.

God bless him and his family.
