Steve Jobs died yesterday. Anyone who has had even a mere brush with technology over the past 35 years can thank him. He fundamentally changed the way that many things work in the world, from publishing to personal communication, and many many things in between.
An excerpt from Steve Jobs’ 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University:
“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. Everything else is secondary.”
He was an inspiration for us all.
