...when I heard the news this morning. I kind of never thought he would die, even though it comes to us all.

When I saw the Mac for the first time back in 84, I must have studied every pixel on every graphic for an entire year from articles in magazines, I didn't own a Mac until the LC757 came out. From those images I discovered what attention to detail meant. Steve understood simplicity and function, but combined it with elegance and art.

He has inspired me to create things with a little more polish than I might have otherwise.

You will be missed...
