With some spare time before running an errand two days ago, I sat outside an Apple Store. I pulled out my iPad, and connected to Apple’s free wireless internet. Unbeknownst to myself beforehand, this is how I would ironically learn about the death of an icon. Despite not knowing Steve personally, I knew he was a superpower of sorts, a man who had accomplished so much in recent years, and touched so many lives. To this day, his company’s competition is still struggling to create products that resonate with people on an emotional level in an industry that was once relegated only to the most extreme of enthusiasts.
A news reporter caught up with me as I was watching video tributes to Steve. You can see me in the video clip below.
Below are a few videos that I would like to share for their inspiration.
“Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world… are the ones that do.”
“Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish”
