Good bye and thank you, Steve Jobs.

In front of Ottawa's (Ontario, Canada) Apple store (Rideau centre) #RipSteveJobs #RIPSteve
A bit over a day since I heard the news that Steve Jobs had passed away, and I’ve been thinking a lot about it – like many people from what I’ve gathered on Twitter and Facebook.

Two thousand, eight hundred and forty-one days ago, I became a Mac user, and as I’ve told many people over the years, I spent months wishing I’d done it sooner.

There have been many people posting tributes to Steve Jobs, how his vision and sheer willpower was able to completely change so many industries, so I do not feel the need to address that.

What I would like to say is that while he was here, he defined excellence.

Now it’s up to us.

I’d like to add, for those of you reading on Friday, Oct 7, that ByMUG is having a special event tonight remembering Steve Jobs that is open to everyone.
