I’m not a big fan of today’s Apple, but Steve Jobs had an an enormous influence on my life. My first computer was an Apple IIe, he was presenting the NeXT workstation when I visited the University I ended up attending, I was an intern and Campus Consultant for NeXT in the 90’s, and the Macintosh set me on a path to Computer Science. I even wrote a paper about him in college.
However, what impressed me most was his lack of cynicism; he was abrasive and downright mean at times, but he was always sincere in creating something great. Goodbye, Steve.
