Steve Jobs Passed Away Today

Goodbye, Steve...we will indeed miss you.

Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, Pixar, and of the great visionaries in consumer technology, died today at the age of 56.  Without his vision perhaps the 'Internet age' wouldn't have arrived in the same way, or perhaps at all.  NeXT computers were, after all, the platform that gave birth to the the first web-pages that now make up the platform that most of our information and applications are delivered on.  Pixar pushed the boundaries of animation and computer video effects.  Apple, of course, drove nearly every modernization of consumer computing for the past 14 years.  It will be interesting to see where Apple heads, and if other players in the computing world take up the mantle of visionary.
