Remembering an American Original: Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs 1955-2011

The world has lost one of its most brilliant minds with the recent passing of Steve Jobs.  He was this generation’s version of Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein.

Jobs came from humble beginnings, as an adopted kid from Northern California who had an interest in electronics and computers.  He never finished college, but that didn’t stop him from becoming a visionary and changing the way the world thinks and communicates.

The following is a speech he gave at the Stanford University Commencement in 2005.  The co-founder of Apple and Pixar, urges us to pursue our dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself. RIP, Steve Jobs.
