Faithful readers of this blog know that I greatly admire Seth Godin and often link to something that he has written. This morning, I am going to reprint (without his permission, I hope Seth understands) every word that Seth wrote on his blog about the end of the the Steve Jobs era at Apple:
"I guess this is how a sports fan felt when Joe DiMaggio retired.
Business didn't used to be personal. Now it is.
Computers didn't used to make us smile. Now they do.
We didn't used to care about whether a CEO made one decision or another, or whether or not he was healthy. I do now.
Sure, there was baseball after Joltin Joe stopped playing. But it was never quite the same.
Thank you, Steve, for giving us all something to talk about and a way to talk about it with beauty (and fonts). We owe you more than we can say."
