He was one of the rare ones

"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."
—Steve Jobs

It was such a punch to the gut to hear the news about Steve Jobs. It seems everyone, everywhere felt the same way. So it was no surprise to see the TV crews and crowds set up outside the 14th Street Apple store this morning.

Nor to see the written notes and tributes that accumulated on the window throughout the day—sort of sweet that they were such low-tech sticky notes.


  1. How totally and appropriately poignant. A sticky note memorial to one of the most technological minds of our time.

    Life's short, Amy. You know? So short...

  2. But what a legacy he left us with. He will be missed. I worked for Apple for a bit last year. Loved every minute of it. Great company, great product, great people and Steve made it all happen.
    Nice nice post.

  3. Brilliant man, so sad. His work will forever mark our lives! Paris Apple stores saw smiliar gestures. So touching!
