Thanking Steve Jobs

I wrote a thank-you to Steve Jobs on the Glassboard website for the company.

Writing a personal thank-you escapes me for now. Too hard. I’ve been a fan since I got my first Apple II Plus, 31 years ago, when I was just 12 years old. That’s a long time. My life wasn’t changed so much as defined, given a shape and a mission and a sense of humanity. How do you thank for something that big?
