Steve Jobs has died and everyone knows that by now. Even my 78 year old mom who has never even touched a computer, except to dust it, rang me to talk about it.

For me I can say with absolute certainty that without Steve Jobs there would be no Outsideleft.com, further back down the line, there would have been no fun career designing websites in hollywood. No working with Bill and Cindy in Irvine. Maybe no enduring friendship with Walt and Cecilia. No meeting Mrs Lamont X under the auspices of finding the perfect Apple computer for her. 

Like many people this morning, I am wondering what I would have done without him.

Steve Jobs engineered so many things so brilliantly.
