Here’s a few of the messages that caught my eye this morning:

To see the looks on my 7 and 8 year old student’s faces when they touch, hold, and use the ipad, gives me chills. I am so blessed to be able to do two jobs that I’m so passionate about and intertwine them together. This is all due to Steve Jobs. I am a teacher and an Apple employee. He will always be the man who saw a dream and went for it. A dream that has forever changed the world for the better. I am so grateful to be a part of such an extraordinary company created and perfected by him. I send my deepest condolences to his family, friends, and Apple family. He will truly be missed but always remembered.


So far removed

I never met Steve Jobs, but as a designer, he and his company have had such a strong impact in my life. I use their products everyday. When I had a serious problem I could email Steve Jobs and someone would be on that Problem ricky tick. As I said, I never met the man, but I miss and mourn him as I would a close and dear friend. Rest in Peace sir.


I was a Luddite. I graduated from college in the mid ’80s without once using either the school’s mainframe computer or any of the personal computers that were starting to appear in dorm rooms. I became a teacher who created tests and other class materials on a typewriter. And then, in the early ’90s, I was assigned as a duty a period each day in our school’s Mac Lab. And it changed my life. Within a few months, I bought my first computer, a second-hand Mac Plus. And I’ve owned a long string of Macs ever since. Thank you, Steve Jobs, for — as Poe said — daring to dream a dream that no one dared to dream before. Thank you for making the world a better place.
