First, my condolences to family, friends and close colleagues. Though millions will mourn and note the passing of Steve Jobs, this will be an especially difficult time for those who had the privilege of knowing him well.
Steve Jobs 2005 commencement address at Stanford is the favorite talk in my iTunes collection. I’ve listened several times over the years, but his lessons on life and death took on new meaning today.
This afternoon I led an iPad professional development workshop for 26 university faculty. Following the workshop, several of the faculty asked why I didn’t offer some sort of tribute to Steve Jobs during our time together. I replied that my tribute was to continue to do the best that I could helping them and others make the most of Apple technology. So I will.
