“Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”

1955-2011

Extremely sad to hear Steve died yesterday.

Funny to hear all the comments on Facebook and Twitter as if you know the man. Not that I did either, but something about the way he related to the normal person through his design was genius. His work created a connection that went beyond the device and linked you to a mentality, a way of processing the world that is innovative and different.

Obama said, “Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.”

IF you’ve never watched Steve’s Stanford Commencement Address from 2005, this is a must watch. I’ve dropped a few of my favorite quotes below.

Do great work. Don’t settle.

“Remembering you are going to die is the best way to avoid the trap of believing you have something to lose.”

Death is life’s change agent.
