I didn’t know Steve Jobs personally, but it sure felt like I did. In elementary school my teacher asked us to predict how the world would look in the year 2000. Most of us pictured ‘The Jetsons’ and thought we’d have flying cars. That year just seemed so far away at the time. As it turns out, we were drastically far off the mark. No one really executed those noteworthy technological advances we dreamed of as kids. That is — except for Steve Jobs. He had a vision — and he had more to do. But he sure did a lot with the time he had. In honor of the man I will miss as if he were a personal friend, I am re-posting his inspirational commencement speech below.
