Steve Jobs

, on October 6, 2011

We have been finding out just how far Steve Jobs’ influence reached, and it is quite incredible.

There are plenty of tributes and quotes elsewhere, but I like reading personal accounts like this short memoir by Wolfram. An older expose by a Robert X. Cringely is also good.

Jobs’ 2005 Stanford commencement speech is excellent, if impossible.

Jobs’ official biography is to be released October 24th.

Looking at the other side of the coin, the comments in this slashdot article explore the negative aspects of Jobs’ influence and how people reacted to his death.
