Steve Jobs: We will miss you 😦
A man of unparalleled artistic and creative genius, a man who revolutionized the computing world once and forever, founded Apple, the biggest game-changer of the industry.
He was a mystery to all of the world, a beautiful mystery. All that we know about him is legendary stuff. And that’s how he’ll always be remembered- in legends. He came, he saw, he conquered. He was ousted, but he came again, and conquered again, bigger than ever.
Always a unique source of inspiration to most ambitious, most talented and most rebellious of us, he was himself a fierce individual, highly original. He wouldn’t be controlled or restrained by anybody or anything, such was the force of his vision. The vision that he had- to make products which are functional as well as highly elegant- changed the world and made it as we know it now; unimaginable without iPod & iPhone, the Macs and the omnipresent elegant white which at once told you it wasn’t just anything, it was an Apple product.
I’ve had his two paragraphs written in my personal diary, the two paragraphs about Connecting the dots, and being hungry and foolish, which was a part of the speech he gave at Stanford University in 2005. They are something which only Jobs could have said, and reading them gives you the idea of who he was, and why there are so less like him.
The visionaries like him aren’t born too often in a century. When they do, they change the face of the world irrevocably. He was one of the eternal greats.
Steve Jobs expired on 5th October 2011.
Rest in peace Steve Jobs. You were one of the coolest motherfuckers I’ve ever seen. It’ll never be the same without you 😦
