Great man, and an inspiration for those dream chasers that there's a place in the world for you... when you create it.

Very sad news indeed. Steve Jobs will be missed.

You have to put him up there with the greatest innovators of all time. Some might say that Jobs doesn't deserve the credit as his workers made it happen, but no other company has been able to consistently innovate like Apple has done with the same type of money to bring in brilliant people. Jobs was the driving force. It will be interesting to see how Apple does without him.

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 praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, glorify them 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?

We make tools for these kinds of people.
Because while some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

And it's the people who are crazy enough to think they can
change the world who actually do.

If geeks ran Dos Equis, they'd have put this guy in their commercials. ;-D

RIP to the guy who has been named on countless of important patents, thinks taking LSD was one of the best things he did in his life and responded to emails in a fantastic manner.
