Steve Jobs Gives a Damn Fine Speech… on Death

When Steve Jobs died the other day Facebook was full of ‘RIP Steve Jobs’ posts, as though people really cared that he had died. Sure you wouldn’t have an iPhone if it wasn’t for him, but it’s not like you knew the guy, and people die, it’s not a huge deal. I wrote a post in response to this that was all in good fun. However; I just saw a video of a speech Steve made to a group of graduating students at Stanford University, and it revealed the humanity in the man I never knew. I still don’t know him, and I still don’t care about or mourn his death, but I still respect him as a person; for following his dreams. Rest in peace to Steve Jobs and every man and woman who has passed before and after him, and rest in peace to anyone who has died in the time I have typed this, you will all be missed by someone, somewhere.
