[quote]Editor Dan Jahn reflects on the death of visionary Steve Jobs.[/quote]
Just as we were wrapping up this issue, Steve Jobs died. I met Steve, and it was a bit… intense. Steve was truly a person of great charisma, and a palpable force when he walked into a room. Some of that force was of course pre-existent due to the massive amount of chat in the ether about “good Steve” and “bad Steve”, but some of it was real – the man had a presence that simply overpowered everything else in the area. When I met Steve he had just taken back the helm of Apple and there was a collective sigh from the audience as he spoke to the Apple acolytes and called himself “iCEO”, and told us that the “i” was for interim, and we all know how that turned out. Steve stayed, took Apple to the height of its power, making it the worlds most profitable company at one point. I doubt the world will realize just exactly what we lost for a while yet; technology, movies, communications, music… all of these fields were dramatically impacted by the vision of just one man: Steve Jobs. The world is of course quoting Steve like mad (we did as well, on our end quote page in this issue), but later in this issue I am going to talk about something else – not a Steve quote, but some Steve principles. Thanks for checking out frenzy magazine, and as always, I would love to hear your thoughts – send me a note, and I will read it on my iPad, listening to iTunes, while I tell Siri, my personal assistant, to organize my day.
Thank you Steve.
