Job's Gone

.
I've woken to the sad news this morning that Steve Job's has lost his long battle with health problems.  Not many of us will leave this life and be able able to say, "I changed the world" but from my viewpoint this man could and did.  Iphones, Ipods and Ipads are now a common sight but without his vision who know's if and when the rest of mankind would have caught up with his thoughts?  Admittedly he didn't do it all by himself, and of course Apple aren't a perfect company, but it saddens me more than usual to know that we've lost a huge influence on what will be created tomorrow.
.
I came across the following video of Steve making an address to Stanford University a couple of years ago, and there are a number of 'golden nuggets'' there which have helped me with my general outlook on life. If you haven't already, I recommend you watch it too.

Hi Mark

Thanks for posting this.

The world needs more people who are prepared to go against convention to make their mark.

I also think that the video you have posted should be played to every school leaver, really inspirational!

Great stuff mate, thankyou.
