Steve Jobs 1955 - 2011

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life,” Jobs said. “Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” -Steve Jobs, Standford University Commencement Address - 2005

Steve Jobs died today of Pancreatic Cancer after a long battle, a thing that PC rarely gives you. There is a Wired tribute article to him here. Though I've never owned an Apple product other than an Ipod, I always admired Mr. Jobs as a larger than life figure in the tech and business world. He went to India to find enlightenment, and created things that weren't there before, which I would say is the mark of a Wizard.

Rest in Peace Steve. You were a great inventor, business person, and all around genius. May you be attended by Hermes and Hephestus, and get teachings from 10,000 Gods of Wisdom. May there be a thousand goblets of the purest water, a thousand plates of the finest food, and a thousand loved ones who you never knew to comfort and watch over you.
