Well put Hank. I'm 22, certainly haven't experienced all that you have but I view Jobs in much the same manner as you do. Viewing Lisa at Boston Museum of Science a few years ago was a true highlight - probably odd statement to make but I was in complete awe. I couldn't help but feel a spark of sadness upon hearing the news of Jobs resignation, particularly because the fact that he has resigned means he is unlikely to return. Jobs doesn't strike me as the type to play with such matters.

We all knew this day would come, but it still hurts. I have been
highly critical of some of Steve's more agressive strategies and
tactics, but make no mistake, he is the most important single person
ever in the field of computer or consumer technology.

I am 46 and while I am not steve's age, but perhaps because of my age,
in my mind he is still in my eyes a young man. People die every day,
people get sick, people resign, people retire. But  for me this has
incredible resonance. I remember back to the late 70s when the
personal computer revolution was just getting started and Apple was
just getting started. I remember the Apple II, and IIe, and the ill
fated apple III. I remember the day the Mac, was announced. And the
Lisa. I remember getting that sense that Apple was about to change the
world and marking the time until the world realized what was
happening.

Somehow its times like these that force us to stare mortality in the
face. Its scary, and at the same time clarifying. Like a strong shot
of smelling salt that helps us recognize how fragile life is and how
we should all make the best of our opportunities on this planet. Steve
was no saint, but he made his mark in the best way possible, by
painting a vivid piece of digital art on the planet earth.

I will miss him greatly, and hope that whatever life brings him in
this next chapter, for however long that may be, brings him joy.
