Yesterday Steve Jobs died.
I was at work and I know I, for one, was confused by how this news hit me. I never knew Steve Jobs but his passing made me realize we’d in fact had an intimate relationship for over 20 years. From my first computer class at Parsons till this very moment as I type on my Mac keyboard powered by my MacBook Pro and displayed on my Apple Cinema Display, Steve was an unacknowledged, ever-present influence on how I worked. Thank you Steve for leading the way with your vision and passion. I never knew you but you were (and will continue to be) a huge presence in my life.
