I usually try not to be too personal on this site, but to stay more scientific in my tone and scope. However, today’s news that Steve Jobs have passed away inclines me to make a short comment. My dad brought home a Macintosh Plus in 1989. Since then, I have without any breaks been a Mac user. I did my first programming attempts around the age of nine in HyperCard. In short, without the Mac I probably wouldn’t have ended up where I am today. And without Steve, there would have been no Mac. Steve’s vision on ease-of-use computers helped me getting into the programming bandwagon in the early nineties. And even though my computer use has changed a lot since, I still feel hugely indebted to Steve Jobs for bringing the computing revolution into my living room. Thanks for the ride, Steve.
