Remembering the Lasting Legacy of Apple's Steve Jobs
By HeartofGoldGirls on October 06, 2011
Along with the rest of the world:
We’re saddened by the death of Apple founder Steve Jobs, who passed away yesterday at the age of 56.
In talking about his death, world leaders, business people, and media around the world are describing Steve Job’s as a “visionary,” which is defined as “thinking about or planning the future with imagination or wisdom.” And when you think about how Jobs imagined and created incredible technological breakthroughs, ones that have literally transformed the way people everywhere communicate, it’s clear that the term “visionary” is spot on.
Our mission here at Heart of Gold is to inspire girls everywhere to explore their dreams, share their vision, and design their future. The legacy that Steve Jobs leaves behind is further encouragement to all of us to do just that.
Steve explored his dreams and his passions throughout his life, famously dropping out of college so he didn’t have to take required classes and instead enrolling in those he found more interesting, like calligraphy, a class that would teach him about typefaces. 10 years later, his knowledge and love for typefaces would be instrumental in making Mac the first computer to use different fonts.
