I quickly first met Steve Jobs in 2002, at the OSX Jaguar release party in Palo Alto. He was very kind to me, and he let me take his picture too. He even joked a bit, I remember. He seemed really happy that night. I saw him four more times at various Apple events since, but never as close as that first time.

I heard many stories here in the Bay Area about Jobs being ruthless to people around him or to competitors, but I think most is forgiven when you consider what a visionary he was. Steve Jobs will be missed as no one else in the tech world has ever been.
