4 sehr lesenswerte Nachrufe auf Steve Jobs, der von vielen nicht zu unrecht als der Thomas Edison unserer Zeit bezeichnet wurde:
- Walt Mossberg: The Steve Jobs I knew
- Doc Searls: The journey was the reward
- John Siracusa: Steve Jobs: a personal remembrance
- John Gruber: Universe Dented, Grass Underfoot
Zitat aus Siracusas Text:
Fast-forward to 1997. My favorite company was on the ropes, financially, technologically, and emotionally. I was 22 years old, and my finely honed cynicism had put a damper on the romantic notion that a small team of smart people could put a put a dent in the universe—even one led by Steve Jobs, who had been pushed out of Apple just a year after the Macintosh was introduced.
By this point in my life, I’d also had enough experience with government, corporations, and academic bureaucracies to understand what happens to organizations as they get larger.
