While the Apple ][ was not the first computer I used, it was the first computer I bought myself with my own money. While I am not Super OMG must have every single product emblazoned with an Apple logo fanboy, I really like their products for the most part would be open to buy them if I could afford to. I think this is due to Steve Jobs vision of the world. So for the past week since I have heard the news of Steve Jobs passing I have held heavy heart for his loss; while holding space for his mourning family and friends. Mr. Jobs was first and foremost human. Humans make choices for good and for bad that is even subjective to the observer. Mr. Job was a great man, however you see good or bad. Great people have to make sacrifice to do great things. He was focused on his vision to bring great product to us. He pushed us to Think Different and look at the world differently even if we didn’t realize it. I feel that he did leave the world better place. I don’t think I would be doing what I do if he didn’t leave his mark on the world.
From the boy in his bedroom writing programs on his Apple ][ to the man writing this post on an ipad. Thank you Steve Jobs for sharing your vision with us.
