Steve Jobs--RIP

Today we join the world in mourning the passing of Steve Jobs. Sure, I'm writing this on a Windows system, but where would the world be if not for his vision and drive? Just a simple listing of a few of his projects for Apple and Pixar, not to mention how we plug into our ipods, shows his amazing love of technology--and the ability to understand what folks are gonna want next.


It makes me wonder what new ideas may now have to wait. 


Take a few moments with this **100 day challenge** blog and think about the good old days. Some of us remember pounding out stories on a manual typewriter ...erasing ...retyping ...oh, it took so much time and effort! Or think about that first big, clunky computer that had NO memory--everything revolved around a huge floppy disc. Or your Walkman... And be thankful for Steve Jobs and folks like him who constantly push the envelope to bring new ways and technology to the world.
I love this picture--can't you just see the future in his eyes?


 As President Obama said..."There may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented."
