VIDEO: Apple Founder, iCon, Steve Jobs Showed Us All “How To Live Before You Die”

young-steve-jobs

Apple announced co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs has died of cancer at the age of 56. We at SFSG appreciate creatives and innovators. Thank you Steve Jobs for reminding us all to throw good grammar to the wind and Think Different.

He revolutionized the way we communicate, the way we watch movies as CEO of Pixar Animation Studios and even the way we listen to music. I do agree with David Roberts of grist.org though and I feel he said it best:

Jobs perfected front-end design. Now we need designers to work on the back end, the substrate, the supply chain, the hidden.

That said, Job’s story is pretty amazing so I’ll let him also tell that in his own words. Enjoy Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address: “How to live before you die” — in which Jobs urges us to pursue our dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks, including death itself.
