Steve, Mac, and Apple







I was saddened yesterday to learn of the death of Steve Jobs, as were many of you. I think this is one who definitely made the world better with his ideas, his philosophy, his creations, his work, the enthusiasm he inspired in others, and his company.    In honor of him, his life's work, how fully he lived for a time that seems much too short, how fully he contributed and used his creativity, and in honor of the epic legacy he leaves behind, I dedicate today's post to him and the names he inspires. I write this post now from my Macbook. Thank you, Steve Jobs. And my deepest condolences to family and friends.
