More about me and Steve Jobs

I re-read a transcript of his 2005 speech to Standford graduates last night after I heard about his death. I worked with people at Apple from 2004 to 2006 while a product manager for UserLand Software, the company that made the first blogging software, Radio UserLand. I wrote code and traveled to some conferences where I met people that worked with Steve. It was as close as I ever got to meeting him.

Steve Jobs has always held a special place in my personal and professional life. His brand of drive and commitment was something I admired, and in recent years, have forgotten to apply to myself. Like many today, I’ll be remembering stories of previous Apple products and how they affected and continue to affect me.

Without a doubt, I would not be the person am I today without the opportunities and tools that Steve Jobs gave us all.

The Passing of Steve Jobs

There are few left who read my weblog–that’s fine, this one’s for me…

Steve Jobs was someone I dreamed of meeting. His sheer force of will was something I greatly admired and I always thought, “if anyone could beat this, he can.”

Like all of our heroes, Steve was human.

To the man I never met, thank you. You made me a better person and you never asked for anything in return.
