The world lost one of the good guys last night. I'm writing this on my iMac at home. In an couple of hours I'll listen to iTunes on my iPhone on the way to work. I'll view this blog on my laptop at work and look at my email on the MS Entourage interface (which will crash--sorry Mr. Gates and McGraw-Hill, but keep trying...eventually you'll work it out). I'll reboot and keep going.

My daughter will read this post later today on her iPad. The web today is full of tributes to a man who was passionate about technology and engineering. Take a few minutes to read Steve Levy's overview of Jobs' life and influence. You won't regret it.

Or watch Steve Jobs' own amazing 2005 Stanford University speech about life, work and death:


Jobs left us all with words to live by: Your time is limited. Don't waste it living someone else's life.
