Steve Jobs: 1955-2011

Allen Berg curriculum and projects learning centers

Dear Colleagues,

As you already know, Steve Jobs passed away October 5, 2011; and left a legacy for the world and a world of legacies. In tribute to him and his life of inventions and innovations for our Digital Age, I simply enclose these two links:

1. Steve Jobs speaking at the Stanford University Graduation in 2005,
available as a youtube video (with over 9 million views)

2. The New York Tmes Obituary Article from Ocober 5, 2011

Perhaps over time there will be further discussion topics based on these and other internet resources etc. The man is gone, but not his lessons...

"Think Different" narrated by Steve Jobs

Was this helpful?

Dear Colleagues and Artists,

Giving tribute to Steve Jobs' life and works, Apple has re-released the original one-minute video narrated by the man himself "Think Different".

It is certainly on youtube, but I am providing the link from
patentlyapple.com, which is one of my favorite Apple websites:



Allen Berg

From Wikipedia:
"The one-minute commercial featured black-and-white footage of 17 iconic 20th century personalities. In order of appearance they were: Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Branson, John Lennon (with Yoko Ono), Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison, Muhammad Ali, Ted Turner, Maria Callas, Mahatma Gandhi, Amelia Earhart, Alfred Hitchcock, Martha Graham, Jim Henson (with Kermit the Frog), Frank Lloyd Wright and Pablo Picasso. The commercial ends with an image of a young girl (identified as Shaan Sahota) opening her closed eyes, as if making a wish.

"Think Different" is an advertising slogan created for Apple Computer in 1997 by the Los Angeles office of advertising agency TBWA\Chiat\Day[1]. It was used in a television commercial, several print advertisements and a number of TV promos for Apple products. Apple's use of the slogan was discontinued with the start of the Apple Switch ad campaign in 2002. The slogan appeared to have been a play on the venerable IBM "Think" motto coined by Thomas J. Watson, with IBM having been a direct competitor of Apple in the PC market. More explicitly, the Apple slogan served to challenge consumers who were wanting to buy IBM-derived Windows-based PCs to consider Apple as a smart alternative.[citation needed]

Hi Allen,

I learned programming on a Mac before a PC. The world lost a "change maker."
