The Death of Steve Jobs

October 6, 2011

When Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO of Apple six weeks ago, I don’t think anybody not in the Jedi High Council really knew how sick he was. Surely he was just going underground for some top secret stem cell treatment and would return later with super powers or worst case as a cyborg. Unfortunately the all-powerful, all-seeing, all-knowing Steve Jobs was still only a man and the pancreatic cancer he had been struggling with for the past seven years finally got the upper hand. Jobs made a good go of it, laying waste to the record industry, making music and movies infinitely easier to make and steal, building pretty little devices that, without overstating it, revolutionized our way of life. The people who were close to him lost a person, but we all lost the architect of a culture and the man who quite literally gave us the means to think differently.
