Its Been Three Years Since

The world lost Steve Jobs.  What can be said about the man that hasn’t already been said?  I for one remember where I was when I heard the news that he had passed.  I was sitting in my London flat, having a cup of coffee and getting ready for my first interview with the company that he co-founded.  Not knowing what to expect during the interview, I figured I would at the very least prepare myself to talk about anything that happened in the past few days.  That’s when I found out he had passed away.  I didn’t know what to think.  Should I go or not go to the interview?  Would the stores be closed? Would my interview be rescheduled?  All this was going thru my head, as I boarded the bus into the city.  If worse came to worse, I would take a nice ride into the city and hit up a Apple store looking for some pics.

Needless to say, that it was business as usual and the interview went on.  A few weeks later, I was putting on my blue shirt and hitting the floor at Covent Garden.

A year and half later, I put on the blue shirt and hit the floor at the world famous Cube on 5th Ave in New York City.

 

RIP Steve Jobs
