"The grand disruptors..."
Jeff Jarvis just called Steve Jobs that on the TWiT network, and it is a great word, a powerful word. Someone like Jobs was a disruptor, and that is the message of the moment. We need to ask ourselves are we disrupting the status quo or are we moving down the stream with the rest of the herd.
Steve Jobs didn't invent anything. He was not the first to bring most of the products to market but we will remember him because he made them better. He focused on what on what people needed and wanted, and made products that people would want to use.
He is role model for us all, and though no one will ever replace him, we have to pick up the slack. The genius has left the room and we have a lot of learning to do."
