Requiescat in pace Steve Jobs

An eerie stillness ... My husband muttered something in the next room this morning (around 5:45 AM or so). He came to my bedside, holding our MacBook with its screen showing a black-and-white photo of Steve Jobs 1955-2011.

I jumped out of bed and we read a short obituary: "Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being." The full 56 years. Hero growing-up, true visionary, inspiration, innovator, power struggle, commercial failures and successes, stubbornness, tenacity, hard work, work-related ill health, and belief in new technology to change the world ... all seem to be quite familiar and I feel close to him as I live with an IT guy.

Two things I truly admire him for is putting vision into action (as many of us even do not have visions of the future or we cannot go beyond vision) and making things user-friendly.

If I had ever run into him, I would have asked him, “Hey, Steve-san, Please give us your personal advice. How can we make our eLaboratories much more user-friendly?"

... sad.
