The Momentum of Steve Jobs

Craig Mod wrote a beautiful essay regarding the passing of Steve Jobs in October, but he only recently published it. It’s one of the best pieces I’ve seen regarding that news.

The hagiographic accounts after the passing of Steve this year understandably cast his accomplishments in an otherworldly light. But in my mind, he will be, as he became to me in this past year, that guy over there also eating brunch at Calafia. The neighbor in a comfortable neighborhood who happened to posses a beautiful, driven mind. Not a saint or a god but simply a someone who had a vision and executed, methodically and consistently and unrelentingly.
