Thanking Steve Jobs

Dear Kay,
We all just got the news that Steve Jobs has died. Truly the end of an era!
Here’s the post I wrote about him when he stepped down in January, along with his amazing Stanford commencement speech. Definitely worth watching.

  1. He has been a huge impact on our lives.

  2. Farewell, Steve Jobs. Thanks for everything.

  3. I started out with a MacIntosh, then for 20 years went over to the darkside out of practicality and price-point. But now I’m working on my incredibly elegant I-Mac and feeling very sad that this rather brilliant man has left us so soon.

  4. The world has suffered a great creative loss, but I suspect he has taught and inspired many.
    The fact that I can read and comment here is all due to him – thanks!

  5. Indeed, I remembered your piece about him and stopped in here first after the Apple site. (Yup, I prefer to get all my news from knit blogs.)

  6. Thanks, Steve Jobs, for your vision. I love my iPad!

  7. Truly a visionary, very sad.

  8. I have been using Macs at home and in school since the early 90s, and I love the look and feel of each machine I’ve had. As sad as it is that Steve Jobs is gone, I remind myself that the pancreatic cancer must have been hard for such a dynamic person to live through. He never would have stepped down if he thought he could do it.

  9. Your post on Steve Jobs was an education in itself. I watched the video with tears in my eyes and have recommended it to boatloads of people since. I also became a Mac owner after that. The loss of good, creative people always feels so personal.

  10. Did you see the yahoo story regarding free airfare to Japan?
    You two should look into this because you are just the “highly influential blogger-types” they are hoping to attract!
