Technology, Tributes

Steve Jobs, 1955-2011

Steve Jobs was an incredible person who left an indelible mark on technology, on business, and on society. His passing yesterday has no doubt turned Silicon Valley (and beyond) on its head. And today you don’t need to look any further than Apple’s tribute (and homepage), Google’s tribute, or Wired’s homepageto understand the impact of his passing.

Since the news broke, we’ve all been glued to our phones and laptops (yes, iPhones and MacBooks) reading the tributes to Steve Jobs and we wanted to take a minute to share a few of our favorites. Below are just a few of the more moving pieces that we’re currently reading (and watching) about the legend that was Mr. Jobs.

This quote from President Obama says it all: "The world has lost a visionary. And 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."
