It's quite rare for me to write posts. Even less so about "celebrities". And far less so when one dies.
Everyone has their own people they look up to. John Lennon, Princess Diana, Amy Winehouse. But none of these really inspired me.
Steve Jobs did.
Yes, the insiration of the Apple products I use everyday. The inventions we take for granted in the modern world. But there was so much more than that.
His desire and passion for the products Apple (and his other companies) produce. How he was thinking ahead, rather than reacting to what the consumer wanted yesterday. He coined iCloud in 1997, a product that finally gets realised to the world later this month.
Possibly to a greater extend were his views. Outwardly at least, he seemed pretty normal, but ultimately unfazed by his impending demise. I would not be surprised if he had this view point before his battle with cancer.
Ultimately, you can make of Steve Jobs what you like, that's your view point. You can detract from his accomplishments, you can turn away from today's global headlines. To me, he's an innovator who drove us forward as a race, and without people like this, we'd still be living in caves.
One final thing. Thank you Steve. RIP.
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
