Steve Jobs 1955-2011

Stay hungry, stay foolish.

Apple founder Steve Jobs resigned on 08/25/11 and died on 10/06/11. Much has been written about Steve Jobs over the past few weeks. I’m not sure what more I can add, so I’ll simply summarize some of my own favorite Apple-related articles below – as well as link to tributes better than my own. I’m writing this with an iMac on my desk, an iPhone in my pocket, and a (new) iPad in my inbox. I think that says a lot. Cool products, cool leader. Thanks, Steve.

In this chapter of the journey, I ended up purchasing a 15-year-old computer to restore one file.
