I was in the midst of late edits on The Intention Economy this afternoon, wondering if I should refer to Steve Jobs in the past tense. I didn’t want to, but I knew he’d be gone by the time the book comes out next April, if he wasn’t gone already. So I decided to make the changes, and stopped cold before the first one. I just couldn’t go there.
Then the bad news came a few minutes ago, through an AP notification on my iPhone. Tonight we all have to go there.
[(I found out the same way…)]
Turns out Steve’s muse was the best in the history of business. No one-hit wonders. We’re talking about world-changing stuff. Again and again and again.
[Sigh. Go read the rest of Doc’s piece and his email from so long ago. Amazing.]
