I know he had so much more to give.
I'm sad that this is the last of many of my posts that have begun with "Dear Steve Jobs" and usually ended with a hilarious auto-correct, or in one case, the I-Bra. I'm sad for his family and his company and his friends. I'm sad for all of us.
I have been thinking about how much of our lives have been brought to us by Steve Jobs. Our photos, our videos, our tweets, our Facebook feeds, our texts, our LOLcats and our Angry Birds. He made the things that are just a joy to interact with and give us a little anti-gravity in our everyday lives.
There was a joyful and creative human at the center of each of his products.
Other companies' technology seems to be designed to make you feel stupid.
Steve's technology makes us feel like geniuses. And like kids on Christmas morning. And like composers and moviemakers and comedians.
As my brother said, what Steve Jobs did was to provide an amplification of human creativity.
I can think of no greater gift to humanity.
