I’ll admit, I cried yesterday when I heard that Steve Jobs had died. It was like losing Jim Henson all over again.
I’ve used Apples since they were Apples, before the Mac. My first home computer (which I had to share with my brother) was an Apple IIe. My first computer of my very own was a Mac LCII. And I’m typing this on a Modbook, a modified white MacBook that’s been turned into a tablet.
Steve Jobs and his company made the tools that make my work happen. And they are a joy to work with. The Apple, the Mac, the iPod, the iPad … they have shaped my life in so many very profound ways.
I am so grateful, Steve. Thank you for all the great tools you made for us. Thank you for the innovation and the care in making it easy for the user. The world will not be the same without you.
