Thought of the Day – 10/6/11

6 Oct

In addition to his many other accomplishments, Steve Jobs did more for a single letter of the alphabet than any other person in the history of the English language.

 

Think about it.  A single, lowercase “i” is synonymous with an entire company, and several industries of related hardware, software, and peripheral paraphernalia.  What other letter has that going for it? 

I’d allow “e” as a strong contender, but go back to my original point:  who is the person who coined e-mail, e-commerce, e-this, or e-that?  Their identity has been lost to the wind.

What Steve Jobs did for the letter “i” – for better and for worst – is an underappreciated part of his legacy.
