Steve Jobs: “Life is fragile.”

I have become interested in Steve Jobs – the person.  Most of us that read this blog are interested in the things that Steve Jobs – the corporate CEO of Apple – designs and brings to market.

Steve Jobs faced death with his recent Liver disease, that humbles a person.

This blog entry at tuaw.com gives us a glimpse at the man.  The blog entry focuses on an email reply that Steve Jobs made to a young man that had lost his girlfriend  to melanoma-induced liver failure.  Steve’s reply was “Life is fragile”.  Buryied in the post is a link to Steve’s 2005 Stanford speech.  Take the time to view it.  The last third of the speech is the best part.  He speaks of how you can connect the dots looking “back” but not forward.  I think it is worth your time.
