Happy Birthday Steve  (1955-2011)

Remembering a legend on his birthday…stay hungry, stay foolish.

Steve Jobs was truly a visionary.  He was always looking to the future, always planning for the next big thing.  His mark on our culture is undeniable.  He has influenced so many lives.  He has been a mentor to so many seeking advice.  But in the end, what he cherished most was his family and what they meant to him—and for me, this was his most endearing quality.

    This was great. This might sound corny, but I’m working on a big deal right now, and was getting bogged down in the normal crap, and this helped focus me and informed a very important response. Really, Simple and Right can be difficult with all the noise; thanks Steve.

      What what are you thanking $teve for? He is dead. Thank the editor for the peice. $teve just hired the right people to put togther their inventions that he provided them a sheltered space to create. Too many people give $teve credit when everything apple has created over the past 7-10 years was invented and designed by Apple desingers and engineers, as well as outside design firms. Fact. In an age where the true workers get no credit and paymfor their work (see r+h bankruptcy at the hells of Life of Pi vfx oscar)

        Steve was much more than someone who hired and fired people. Steve brought back Apple from failure to be the most successful tech company in the world. He was a visionary who had the ability to guide the future of Apple, and the tech world with his ideas and ambition. He was the leader. He didn’t make every decision at Apple, but he made more than most CEO’s. Those Apple engineers were able to create and make amazing products under his guidance and approval. Steve once said that he was just as proud of the “Stuff” they never release as the stuff they had. He had a gift for imagining and fostering products people wanted, and that hasn’t changed. If you think that Apple employees never receive any credit for the work they do, then you really don’t know much about Apple.

      We all die. Not all of us really live or are able to make a difference. Steve made a difference.
