Steve Jobs 1955-2011
Today the world lost a true innovator with the passing of Steve Jobs. I could go on and on about how his ideas and work have influenced how we use and engage with technology today, plus his influence in the movie industry with the founding of PIXAR but there are plenty of others who could do it much more eloquently than I can. However as someone who uses technology every day and a Disney fan I know how Steve's influence has effected my own life. Even in the face of his own mortality, Steve never let his passion for his work waver and always pushed his company and employees to strive to be the very best.
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle." -Steve Jobs
