The sad news arrived today that Apple Computers creator Steve Jobs passed away from pancreatic cancer. He has been a technological innovator and friend of the creative community. His Macs have been the standard for editing in the film industry as well as animation, computer graphics, and photography. Our lives have been affected in so many ways by his creations such as the iPod, iPhone, and iPad, whether you use these devices or not–these toys have changed our society. Additionally, Jobs was instrumental in the creation of Pixar, which arguably changed the film industry. Like Walt Disney or Jim Henson, his creative vision has long-reaching effects that will be with us for a long, long time. The world will miss him.
