It was shocking and sad news to hear of the passing of Apple Founder, Steve Jobs this week. He can arguably be considered one of the most influential people of this generation. The technological developments he created have impacted our culture and our world far beyond the realm of technology.
From the first Apple computer to the latest release of the iPhone (not to mention the over 300 million iPods among us!), his creations have deeply changed our social interactions, our educational approaches, our communications, how we express ourselves and so much more. No doubt the debate will rage for years to come regarding the positive and negative ramifications of his contributions to society, to cultures, to the world as a whole. But one cannot doubt his compassion for using his mind to the fullest and encouraging others to do so! Thank you Steve!
