So Long Steve…
It’s been a while since I’ve had the time to blog about anything, but I thought I would take a few moments today to say thank you to Steve Jobs for all he has given us as a society.
Although I never knew Mr. Jobs personally, the works of Apple had a profound impact on my life and is indirectly responsible for where I am today. From my first Mac LC, to the amazing Quad-Core MacBook Pro with Dual Thunderbolt Displays, I’ve been an Apple fan-boy through and through.
My closest encounter with Steve Jobs was when he showed my wedding video during his 2005 keynote at Macworld. We had just gotten married a few weeks before in Hawaii and Apple had sent a crew out to film our happy day, although we didn’t know at the time how it was going to be used. To seem him on stage showing a 30 second clip of my wedding promoting Final Cut Express HD was one of the crowning moments of my tech life. Here is a picture from the keynote.
So with that, I would like to bid a fond farewell to a true American icon and business legend. May you ride off into that digital sunset with endless playlists and free wifi. You have changed the world for the better.
