Ode To Steve Jobs

  • Oct 6 2011 - 9:53pm by Patrick Adam

It's only fitting that my first personal post be the last regarding the greatest innovator of my time - Steve Jobs.  His vision and passion for the digital world has catapulted us to the next level.  His creativity was inspired from within and influenced by none, yet copied by millions.  The ability to continuously create successfully is a talent shared by few, and Steve Jobs was endowed with the gift of genius.

Generation X will most likely never see such talent again.  He not only influenced technology, but Jobs also altered the world and the way we go about our lives.  Communication has been handed down to a simple device of choice and an infinite amount of information accessible via a touch screen slate.  Mobility was reengineered, again, and again, and again.  He shrunk the world of entertainment by bringing it all together seamlessly, and the world embraced it enthusiastically.

And now we mourn a legend that has passed and hopefully take the lessons he presented us with going forward.  Once the mourning has ended, we will look for the new inspiration that leads us to the next level.  That next level will have the door ajar, and if you peek in and look closely, you’ll see Steve Jobs, waiting.

If there’s an afterlife, I’m sure Steve Jobs will create a way to communicate with us all.
