While Newsweek and the Wall Street Journal and CNET continue to drone on about the impact of the Steve Jobs era, I won’t be pondering the MacBook Air I write on or the iPhone I talk on. I will think of the day I saw him at his son’s high school graduation. There Steve stood, tears streaming down his cheeks, his smile wide and proud, as his son received his diploma and walked on into his own bright future leaving behind a good man and a good father who can be sure of the rightness of this, perhaps his most important legacy of all.
A terrific look at Steve Jobs from someone with a very different perspective than the vast majority of commentary we’ve seen.
Last week John Gruber said, “Jobs’s greatest creation isn’t any Apple product. It is Apple itself.” Maybe for you and me that’s right. But I suspect that Lisen Stromberg strikes closer to the truth: the greatest creation any of us can hope to achieve is a happy, healthy family that loves us. That is a dent in the universe that any of us can make if we want it to.
