Steve Jobs: Thank you, Dreamer ExtraordinaireReply
I am sad to have just learned of Steve Jobs' passing. The news arrived via a friend's email that I received on my wonderful MacBook.

He was the epitome of one who ceaselessly asked, "What if?" and "Why not?" I find the quote of his below to be inspiring and moving.
At a 2005 commencement address at Stanford University, Jobs shared the philosophy that drove him.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life,” Jobs said. “Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Sweet dreams, Steve. And thank you.
