Steve Jobs

My Dad just called me to tell me the news: Steve Jobs, the guy who shaped the field for much of the digital technology that I love, has died.

I am sad, and I am sorry for his family’s loss.

This is also a terrible loss for the Apple community of friends, colleagues, and enthusiasts who rallied around Apple since the company’s inception by Jobs and Wozniak.

All that I can think to say right now is, Thank you, Mr. Jobs.
