Friday Top 5

As probably everyone knows by now, the tech world sustained a major loss this week in the passing of Steve Jobs. So this Friday, it’s Steve’s Top 5:

  1. The mouse
  2. The graphical user interface
  3. Pixar
  4. The first truly functional touch screen interface
  5. Never losing sight of the marriage of form and function

To quote Arthur C. Clarke: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

Steve Jobs: visionary, innovator, magician.

That which is remembered is never truly gone.

(Back Monday, October 17 – I’m at my organization’s fall conference next week. Also, today is the annual celebration of Ada Lovelace Day, which recognizes the contributions of women to IT.)
