Apple announced this afternoon that Steve Jobs had died.
It is the end of an era, but not the end of a company.
I met Steve Jobs only once – in 1992. There was only time for a brief chat – we were sharing the stage at an industry event. (He, um, went first.)
But, I’ve worked with the products Steve Jobs created since Jan. 24, 1984 – when the first Macintosh was released. I switched to the Mac 27 years ago, and haven’t looked back once.
The tributes to Steve have been pouring in since he resigned as CEO of Apple and he is deserving of all the praise. What he did with Apple since his return is both amazing and legendary.
However, the true measure of his legacy is how the world has changed because Apple was in it. And here, his influence is beyond measure, because it is woven into the very creativity of the planet.
He made giant footprints.
