Steve Jobs’ visionary products changed our culture. But I think his philosophy of life, work, and death have meant event more to me.
It’s fitting that his own words about death are the ones that help me put his death in perspective, but also my own life:
I’m currently in “head down” mode on a really fun WordPress project, but once I get to surface again, I’ve amassed a pretty big list of fun to take care of:
- My guide to finding the perfect web host by emphasizing publishing strategy over technical jargon and marketing BS (can’t decide between text or video format for this)
- My news addict’s guide to stress-free feed consumption
- My long-term list of things that rock about OS X Lion
- My long-term list of things that suck about OS X Lion
- Harry Potter movies 1-7 at home, then hopefully see no. 8 while still in the theater
- The rest of my new apartment’s living spaces: more art for more walls, more furniture for the living room
- My car (dead for nearly 3 months) – I’ve been on my bike all summer, and am loving it. People who have read A Game of Thrones keep warning me that winter is coming for some reason, though.
- My commute bike – it’s racked up a few hundred more miles and needs some TLC.
“There are two types of companies: those that work hard to charge customers more, and those that work hard to charge customers less. Both approaches can work. We are firmly in the second camp.”
