Steve Jobs

Dead iPhone - The Anti-Social MediaLike all the other nerds in the world, I’m sad about Steve Jobs passing away.

This blog, and my life, wouldn’t be as awesome without his work. Without him, I wouldn’t have a device that can access the entire world’s information in my pocket anytime, anywhere.

It’s amazing to think about that and what it means for our culture.

But I don’t think Mr. Jobs would want me to sit around and be sad that he’s no longer in this world. He’d probably want me to keep swearing and making cartoons.

And buying a shit ton of apps for that magical phone.

So here’s to you Steve. Let’s hope your work continues to inspire us in this digital age.

    Food for thought via Twitter:

    “I’ll say what no one has the guts to say: the iPhone 4S killed Steve Jobs”.

    No, seriously, a great loss. A true visionary. A living example (to me, at least) of a famous Einstein quote:

    “Imagination is more important than knowledge”.

    Damn right it is. Steve Jobs showed us all. As far as I know, he didn’t code or built much. He provided the vision and imagination, which are far more important.

      I like to imagine knowledge. Or have knowledge of imagination. Whichever is more confusing.

        Exactly! Just confuse people, they’ll think you’re knowledgeable.

        Hey, apparently that works for the “Social Media Experts” in my area…

          Where I live, everyone is a social media expert. It’s very confusing.

    Steve fulfilled his purpose and, no doubt, went out the way I’d like to go: having left my positive contribution to humankind. Well done, Steve!

    • Jay October 7, 2011 at 10:27 am #

      I want to go out with a positive contribution.

      Hell, I’ll even take a negative one.

    If you are in business and on the internet then we don’t have a choice on whether we use social media, the questions is how well do we use it.
