Steve Jobs, 1955 - 2011

Steve Jobs died last night. He will be remembered for his uncompromising vision, and his exceptional commerciality, creativity and engineering.

"The world has lost a visionary."
Barack Obama

"A genius who will be remembered with Edison and Einstein, and whose ideas will shape the world for generations to come."
Michael Bloomberg

"Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."
Steve Jobs
