Steve Jobs

This Stellar of Steve Jobs was compiled in 2010, and clearly any analysis of his uniqueness is, sadly, in the past tense. His death provoked an enormous outpouring of respect and affection, with full acknowledgement from all quarters of his major contribution to the world. What drove him was the desire to enable people to bring their own value into the world, and one of his many skills was his ability to recognise what hardware could accomplish in that regard. He was not a great inventor but he was superb at identifying and understanding how technology could be productively exploited. Another of his skills was in understanding how to lead a company, in a way that fully characterised and brought to expression the greatest creativity, integrity and professionalism. He knew how to inspire people. Perhaps his greatest skill, however, was in understanding the ‘technology’ and aesthetics of how we interface with computers. Everything Apple produced had a fluency, grace, elegance and beauty that met with how we think, feel and communicate when interacting with the content displayed on a screen. It was the magic of how we acquired new powers in the world through Apple products that Jobs was so brilliant at. Our gratitude is immense.
