Eternal Flame


I feel oddly like I did when Gene Roddenberry died. An imperfect genius gave us something that transformed our culture in ways we barely understand, from the mouse to the iPod.

Those who continue to cling to Mac vs. PC nonsense are already making jokes, but business leaders recognize that Jobs' innovations helped user in the computer age, and the culture he helped form will continue to evolve in ways as yet unknown.

Rest in peace, Mr. Jobs.

P.S. My 1989 Mac SE is still operating just fine, thanks. I consider that a miracle of modern engineering.
