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:
- The mouse
- The graphical user interface
- The first truly functional touch screen interface
- 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.)
