stay hungry, stay foolish: remembering steve + michael

steve jobs
1955 – 2011

john lasseter + steve jobs

why?
because he valued design and aesthetics as much as function and performance
because he constantly strove to be the best–even until the end. i don’t think it’s a coincidence he died only a day after the iphone 4s was released. he was in it until the end.
because of his creativity and innovation
because i don’t think pixar would be here today if it wasn’t for him
because of his charisma and his ability to inspire others
because he was a regular guy

an oldie but goodie:

michael jackson
1958 – 2009

why?
because he’s the moon walker
because of his compassion and empathy
because he was also a perfectionist
because he felt lonely
because he truly loved his fans
because i abandoned him

why thrill billie jean when you can be a smooth criminal?

because…they left us too soon…were game-changers, no–world-changers…there will never be anyone else like them
rest in peace
i will miss you both, always
