Connecting the dots … Steve Jobs ist tot October 6, 2011

Posted by Wolfgang Tonninger in Business, Competition.

Wenn ein Mensch geht, bleibt ein Lücke. Wenn ein Visionär geht, weist diese Lücke nicht in die Vergangenheit, sondern in die Zukunft. Steve Jobs ist tot. Was er jenen hinterlässt, die ihn nicht kannten, ist zunächst einmal keine Firma und kein noch so cooles Device. Es ist eine mitreißende Rede, die er 2005 in Stanford hielt – “connecting the dots”.

Bill Gates kannte ihn gut und lange – als Freund, Kollege und Rivale. Hier seine persönliche Reaktion aus thegatesnotes:

I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.
Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.
The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.
For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor.  I will miss Steve immensely.
