Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011

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. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

I carve out an a few hours each week to step away from the day-to-day and think creatively.  I do so to not to think about where the industry is headed, but where I want to it to go.  I learned to do this from the man who embodied this practice better than anyone.  That’s what I’ll remember Steve Jobs for.  That’s what he taught me.

You lived life to the fullest, Steve.  Thanks.

One thought on “Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011

  1. We kept the controls simple because what is happening in the game world should be more interesting
    than what is happening in the UI. You will discover only two
    identified species of dragons so a lot inside activity,
    but alongside together with the dragons, happens the possibility of
    your conclude the realm of Tamriel. Players just want to play the game, they don’t care about all those other things
    unless they aren’t working.
