I wrote most of this blog entry prior to the news of Steve Job’s passing and thus held off posting it. Jobs made a huge impact on the computing industry and his impact will continue to be felt for a long time. His work with Pixar and NeXT computing were amazing and they pale next to what he did with Apple. I remember looking over a coworker’s shoulder at a demo of the Next system and thinking it was very cool. That was back in the days when we were also seeing demos of things like new versions of OS/2 and having a different reaction.
What do you think?
