Steve Jobs, 1955-2011
“Part of the narrative that made Apple what it is today goes out with Steve Jobs. I came out to honor the fact that one man with vision, courage and unwavering dedication can still change the world. The way that I communicate and the way that I interact with the world is through things that Steve Jobs has created.”
—Christopher Smith, 40, a former business development manager at vigil for Steve Jobs outside Apple HQ at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, Calif. The Apple visionary died yesterday of pancreatic cancer. URL
