On Reaching 800 With Sadness

I was hoping the 800th BRT article would be a happy occasion relating some aspect of tech to society in ways you, my faithful readers, would find interesting but sadly, it will not happen because of the death of Steve Jobs, one of the true giants of our age. I won't get into the achievements of this extraordinary man, others can do that for me, but a quote from a 2005 commencement speech he gave at Stamford says it all.

Growing up in the 60's, Stewart Brand's singular statement, Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish in his Whole Earth Catalog. became part of my mantra as designer, web developer and writer. I am proud to say it was Steve's as well.
