In Memoriam: Steve Jobs
Posted by Larry / to News / on October 6, 2011

Techie is not a word friends would include when describing me but Steve Jobs was one of my heroes.  There are designers and there are suits.  Steve was extraordinarily both, and what change he brought with that power.  Thank you Steve for showing the world that in business, design, beauty and cool do matter, and the market will reward you for caring about aesthetics. 

Please feel free to share your comments.

  When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.”

  "Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes ... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. ... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. ... They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."

  I try to remember this quote of Steve's when thinking about our business "form not only follows function, form is function"
