It’s impossible to load up Twitter, Techmeme or HackerNews without reading the tragic news of Steve Job’s death.
Like everyone else, I was incredibly saddened by the news. I will always have the fond memories of following his famous keynotes through liveblogs or occasionally even getting to stream them. Only Steve could make things like that exciting.
Like so many others, I owe much of what I do today to Steve and his company. I really started to get into computers when I was in Jr. high. The small school I attended only had Apple computers – I built the foundation of my deep interest in computers on OS7, OS8, and OS9. The first program language I learned was HyperTalk for HyperCard on OS8. Fast forward to today, I’ve since ran full circle and use only Macs in my daily work routine.
We lost a visionary 30 years too soon.
