There isn’t much I can say about Steve Jobs. I never met him, personally, but his influence was felt from my childhood. Like many reacting to the news of his passing, I am doing so on a device he was involved in designing. He has inspired me greatly, as with countless others.
The official announcement of his passing on the Apple website encourages us to mail our thoughts to the email firstname.lastname@example.org. This is what I sent:
As you have begun your voyage to an undiscovered country, I wish you the best. Soon you will forget us, but we will long remember you.
