Steve Jobs 1955-2011

6 10 2011

As we acknowledge and pay tribute to the master who has moved on — Steve Jobs, in his own words, expresses his philosophy of death elegantly:

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

The world has lost one of the great visionaries in history and the Thomas Edison of our times. Yet he continues on as in inspiration to all of us that seek innovation, perfection and success.

As Slate’s Farhad Manjoo writes about Jobs following his death, so too, does he characterize tango so eloquently,  “The major touchstones of the Jobs aesthetic are obvious — … he believed in elegance and minimalism.”   Steve, we will miss you … and we will tango on.
