My Idol, Steve
Steve was one my idols, not because he helped build Apple Inc., but rather for his ability to turn Apple into a set of beliefs.
That technology is too powerful of a force to enjoy without acquired perception and natural intelligence.
That product design has the power to momentarily satisfy the never-ending search for order and reason.
Many are asking themselves why they feel so much sadness over Steve’s death even though they never knew him on a personal level. Steve became a symbol for many of us, representing how technology can push society forward. Edison advanced society in the late 19th and early 20th century, Disney in the early and mid-20th century, and Steve in the late 20th and early 21st century. Many tears are being shed over Steve’s death because deep down we know it’s unlikely we will see another visionary like Steve in our lifetime.
