Steve Jobs, RIP

It was THE news of today and there was no way to miss it: Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away yesterday. 🙁

I have always been a huge fan of him and ‘his’ Apple philosophy, and while the latter remains, the world lost a visionary leader whose legacy will be remember for decades.

As you can see in this timeline of ‘His Life, His Companies, His Products’ published by The New York Times, there a many, many things that he will be respected and remembered for.

For me there is one thing specifically that made a BIG impact on me: the commencement speech to the graduates of Stanford University that he delivered in 2005.

It is less then 15 minutes and especially now, I can really recommend *everyone* to watch the clip and listen to what he has to say, you will learn from it! And…everything happens for a reason!

The transcript of this great speech can be found in the Stanford University News Service Archives.

 

The second thing I would like to share here, is Apple’s ‘Think Different’ campaign, the best commercial he ever produced…”Here’s to the crazy ones“:

‘…because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do…’

Thank you Steve, we love you!
