Steve Jobs, 1955-2011

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

Steve Jobs not only created Apple, which employed me and gives me all the technology I use every day, he also inspired me to build great products, and to start Posterous. But it goes beyond technology: Steve Jobs taught me to expect the best, and never compromise, in all aspects of my life.

No one other than my parents has had a greater impact on my life and who I am. I am lucky to have worked under Steve Jobs, and he has made me who I am today.

I am very sad that this day had to come.
