Here I sit on a cloudy wednesday afternoon at Pixar with the news of Steve Jobs’ passing spreading from office to office around me, and it makes me think of how much he’s affected my life. I’m here working at a job I love because Steve bought and kept Pixar afloat through early difficult times. When I leave here in a few hours I’ll listen to some music or read a bit on my phone during the train ride home, or maybe stop for dinner and watch some online videos while I eat. Then later at home I might tinker with some coding on my Mac. As a technophile, pretty much every waking moment of this day has been made possible or heavily influenced by one visionary human being.
Rest in Peace.
