Steve Jobs, Dead at 56


Who is this man? He’s the anchor baby of an activist Arab muslim who came to the U.S. on a student visa and had a child out of wedlock. He’s a non-Christian, arugula-eating, drug-using follower of unabashedly old-fashioned liberal teachings from the hippies and folk music stars of the 60s. And he believes in science, in things that science can demonstrate like climate change and Pi having a value more specific than “3,” and in extending responsible benefits to his employees while encouraging his company to lead by being environmentally responsible.

A man named on hundreds of patents died today. Here’s how he’ll be remembered.
