I am truly mourning the loss of Steve Jobs. In fact, I’m a little shocked by it. I knew he was sick, but I somehow thought he would live on. Crazy, I know.

Steve Jobs was a leader in combining art and technology. Among a bazillion other awesome things, he designed the first computer with aesthetically pleasing typography and introduced the first personal computer with a graphical user interface.

His creative genius has made my life and my job more fun and enjoyable on a daily basis.

If you haven’t seen Steve Job’s 2005 Stanford Commencement Address, take the time to check it out, it’s very inspirational. He didn’t just talk the talk, he walked it.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.” -Steve Jobs


RIP Steve Jobs.
