Since the passing of Steve Jobs, a lot of people have been talking about how surprised they were at how strongly they felt about his passing. It’s no question that he changed the world. But it got me thinking about the other people that have influenced me, though I’ve never met them.
These three men - Jim Henson, Gene Kelly, and Steve Jobs - all inspired and influenced and challenged me. And still do. And I had that “punched in the gut” feeling when I learned of each man’s passing.
So… Thank you, Jim. Thank you, Gene. Thank you, Steve.
Thank you to all of the people out there who are creating and innovating and breaking down walls. You have inspired me, and will continue to inspire future generations to do great things.
