In memory of Steve Jobs.

A DAY TO REMEMBER STEVE JOBS

Oct 5, 2011by tracey Comments

I knew I was going out last night so I wrote a blog before I left that would be ready to send when I got home. But when I came out of the symphony I checked my iPhone and found a message from my husband telling me that while I was listening to The New York Philharmonic, Steve Jobs had  died. Walking home I decided the only appropriate  thing to do  today would be to remember and honor him.

As is often the case Seth Godin says so well.

A eulogy of action

I can’t compose a proper eulogy for Steve Jobs. There’s too much to say, too many capable of saying it better than I ever could.

It’s one thing to miss someone, to feel a void when they’re gone. It’s another to do something with their legacy, to honor them through your actions.

Steve devoted his professional life to giving us (you, me and a billion other people) the most powerful device ever available to an ordinary person. Everything in our world is different because of the device you’re reading this on.

What are we going to do with it?
