For me, like many others it feels like I have lost a very close friend. Someone whose vision and passion has had a profound impact upon my life.
You were not interested in compromising or following the status quo. You did what you thought was right. It didn’t always go perfectly, but you learnt, grew stronger and did it better. You showed the world that design matters. That technology need not be about features and specs. That us, the users are special.
Although you have gone, you have created the tools that will build upon your legacy. We just need to have the courage to stick to our convictions and apply the same kind of drive to our own work.
Thank you Steve and good bye.
