The Legacy of Steve Jobs, A-Z

Words can’t express the collective loss of this man’s contributions to the world, but here’s my feeble attempt at a tribute to his legacy.

Steve Jobs, from A to Z:

  • Apple Computer
  • Bug’s Life
  • Cars
  • Digital Signal Processor Chip
  • “…enthusiastic about what we do”
  • Finding Nemo
  • Glasses, wire-rim
  • Henry Ford of Our Time”
  • The Incredibles
  • Jefferson Award
  • Khakis and Turtleneck
  • LSD
  • Mach Kernel
  • National Medal of Technology
  • One more thing…”
  • Pixar
  • QuickTime
  • Reality Distortion Field”
  • Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”
  • Toy Story
  • Up!
  • Vegetarian (well, technically pescetarian)
  • WebObjects framework
  • NeXT Step
  • Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s 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.”
  • Zen Buddhist

Thanks for everything Steve.  We’ll miss you.  1955-2011, RIP.
