Well I didn't expect that, at least not so soon after he announced stepping down. Not that I feel anything special for him; I'm not an Applehead, never met him, not even a technogeek. But there's a saga to his life and he was one of my generation. As my generation dies off (and we have been for 4 decades) I watch what we know, what we did, go with it. Not so for Steve Jobs. He made it on his brains and commitment, something not done often enough these days. He changed things, really- changed the world as we knew it. Whether that's good or bad is immaterial. He will be remembered for all the change he brought, all his hard work and determination. That should be enough.
