Yesterday morning’s front-page newspaper story was news about Steve Jobs’ death. Not news really; the information had been on the internet the day before.
Jobs’ creativity and larger-than-life personality are legendary; he was instrumental in developing the technology that produced a seismic shift in the way we work, play, live at home and relate to each other.
David Sarno and Christopher Goffard for the Los Angeles Times reported that he sat in on classes that interested him after dropping out of Reed College in Oregon. A Calligraphy course “inspired him to offer Macintosh users multiple fonts, a feature that would become a fixture of personal computing”.
The little details of a life add to the fascination and charm of the person.
Our latest book on the topic has a fitting title when you think not just about the magic of calligraphy, but the magic of creativity and the things that inspire it.
Steve Jobs was all about creativity and connectedness. That this blog is here at all and every link in it are tributes to him.
Most of us want the one thing we can never have: forever. Some people are so large they almost achieve it.
