Just last week I set out on a search to locate a few photos I had recalled seeing online not too long ago. I thought they would be perfect for Setups and Spaces and the person behind the setup is someone that I not only I respect and admire but, in my opinion, his work and vision largely serves as the inspiration for more setups than only other individual in the world.
That person is Steven P. Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple Inc.
Yesterday Apple announced that Steve would be taking a medical leave of absence for the second time in as many years. No timeframe was given as to his return.
There is a question that people of note are often asked, and that is “if you could have lunch with one person, living or dead, who would it be?”. Answers range anywhere from Jesus to John Lennon, and everywhere in between. While I am not sure I would be considered a person of note by anyone other than my friends or family, I have never hesitated when answering that question. If I could break bread with only one person, it would undoubtedly be Steve.
In that same vein, if I could choose any one person to feature on SetupsandSpaces.com it would also be Mr. Jobs. And while I am sure Steve has the neither time nor the inclination to be featured on my little site, luckily for all of us he was gracious enough to allow Time Magazine photographer Diana Walker to shoot some fantastic pictures of him in his home office in Palo Alto California.
I am featuring Steve on Setups and Spaces today not only to honor an individualwho instilled a passion for technology and the arts in so many of us, but as my personal way of taking a moment to express my hope for a swift and healthy return to a man who found what he loved.
