I don’t often feel sad or feel sadness, but I do sometimes in times of collective sadness. I’m not sure why. Last night I was on an airplane when it was announced that Steve Jobs had died. When I saw 4 random posts about Jobs on Tumblr, I knew right away. Growing up, the first computer I remember using was a IIgs, but we had at least one model before that. We also had a Performa after that. My first computer at college was a black and white Mac laptop with a 500 MB HD. Etc etc.
I sometimes collect as much about a story in one place as I can, almost as a personal reference for the future. (The Comprehensive Election Reactions Round Up from Obama’s election is a good example). I haven’t done it recently, but figured now would be a good time. Here’s most of what I looked at yesterday, loosely sorted. You’ve probably seen some of this stuff, but probably haven’t seen all of it. The sources are Twitter, Stellar, and Tumblr, along with just clicking around.
RIP, Steve Jobs. Peace and strength to your family and loved ones.
