Geeks don’t cry. But today is different.

Today we say goodbye to the greatest visionary of the last 50 years–perhaps the greatest visionary since Leonardo di Vinci.

Steve Jobs had a vision of the world that no one else could see.

Steve Jobs dared to ask the boldest “what if?” questions, and he dared to do something about them.
