Good Job, Jobs

The world acknowledges and mourns the passing of one of the most influential human beings (in terms of business, communications, entertainment and productivity) in history: Steve Jobs.

Much has been said about this remarkable man and his many accomplishments.  Many revere him and some revile him, but the fact remains that he transformed the way the entire world works.  His demand that technology be nice to look at, easy to use, and bottom-shelf in terms of accessibility (ok, well perhaps not always in terms of pricing) and elegant, set a standard for his own industry and many others.

He is lauded for his impact on computing, and particularly personal productivity and entertainment, but not enough credit is given for the sheer breadth of his impact:  the man transformed (and in some cases, co-opted) the music, movie and cellphone industries, and boosted productivity in many others.  And he was likely in the process of doing the same once again for tv.  Under his leadership, Apple was transformed into one of the largest businesses in the history of the world.

Absolutely incredible.  Farewell, Steve, we'll miss your impact.
