By now, you’ve probably heard the very sad news of Steve Jobs’ death. What an amazing man who has touched most of our lives.
I don’t currently own any apple products (there is hope) but I’ll never forget our first home computer. The very humble Apple II.
We lived in Germany when the Apple II first came out and when I came home to visit family, my orders were to “Bring back that new little Apple computer.” It was all so very exciting. Would this new home computer thing just be a passing fancy? Were we throwing our money away? Oh, the fun we had writing little programs in Basic. I was so desperate for home-useful programs that I wrote a program to tell me what part of the house I needed to clean every day. Boy, oh boy, those were the days!
A few years ago I watched this video from Steve Jobs’ Stanford 2005 Commencement Address. Definitely worth the time to watch.
And tonight, I found this on YouTube .
R.I.P. Steve Jobs. You’ve left an indelible mark on our world — Thank You for leaving it a far better place than you found it.
