Steve Jobs passes away

October 5, 2011 at 6:12 pm (Anything and Everything, Food for Thought, Quotes and such)

I’ve been absent from this blog all summer, but I felt the urge to come back to post about the tragic death of Steve Jobs.  Though his life was short, he impacted the lives of millions of people and will forever continue to do so.  It is because of people like him that I am forever proud to be from the Silicon Valley.  Wish I could have seen him in person over the dozen times I’ve had lunch at Apple’s headquarters.

Rest in Peace, Steve Jobs. (1955-2011)

RIP Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them. Glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them, because they change things. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
