Steve Jobs 1955-2011

I just needed to stop and say thank you to Steve Jobs.

My first husband was a multi-variate statistician and psychologist who was part of the original design team for IBM’s ‘personal computer’. He was a big believer in the architecture of the PC, and therefore we weren’t “Apple people.” (This is way before Microsoft. My husband built computers by hand.)

However, he also died young, taken by Cancer.

I am immeasurably grateful to the empire Steve Jobs built, the Mac I’m using now, the ipods, ipod touches, iphones and Pixar movies that inform, entertain, and connect my family.

My thoughts are with his family. 😦
