So not about hockey - Steve Jobs

I know we're all about the hockey here at WIIM, but we all lost a great visionary and a great leader yesterday.

Just think for a few minutes about how differently you view things involved with technology today and where we might (or might not) be without.....the Mac, Windows (Apple had it way before Microsoft did), the iPod, the iPhone, the iPad, Podcasts and lots of other innovations that escape my mind right now.

I grabbed this off another site earlier today and thought it was so elegant and yet so perfect for how he viewed life.  We will likely not see another Steve Jobs in our lifetime, he will be missed.

STEVE JOBS 1955-2011

Steve Jobs was the Thomas Edison of our time. Just as the light bulb changed the way we looked at things so did the innovations that Steve imagined and produced. He was of the world's greatest marketers. We will miss him.

In his own words he expresses his philosophy of death elegantly:

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
