Calligraphy and Steve Jobs

Calligraphy and Steve Jobs

Last night (4th Oct night-5th Oct early hours), I was thinking about Steve Jobs for his work on fonts, calligraphy. I was ‘owling’ out late in the night, and one of the thoughts was about a rendezvous with him to share my thoughts on typography and beauty of written language.

This is one of the so many reasons and ways people connected with legendary Jobs.

During the day on Wednesday (5th Oct 2011), news of Jobs’ death spawned an outpouring of grief and gratitude from his fans at Cisco and across the globe.

He will forever be associated with modern computing and business.

Personally, I cherish what he advised at Stanford 2005 commencement Stanford 2005 commencement speech

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”

Most importantly, he added: “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Apple was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne in April 1976, it was incorporated as Apple Computer, Inc., in January 1977, and sales of its computers, including the Apple II, grew quickly. Within a few years, Jobs and Wozniak had hired a staff of computer designers and had a production line. Apple went public in 1980 to instant financial success. Over the next few years, Apple shipped new computers featuring innovative graphical user interfaces, such as the original Macintosh in 1984, and Apple’s marketing advertisements for its products received widespread critical acclaim. However, the high price tag of its products and limited software titles caused problems, as did power struggles between executives at the company. In 1985, Wozniak stepped away from Apple, while Jobs resigned and founded a new company – NeXT – with former Apple employees.
