This is a truly great blog post, about Steve Jobs, written by someone who knows him from the neighborhood. Hat tip to John Pachchdgbfhcgdj (I think that’s how he spells it) from All Things D:
My neighbor, Steve Jobs, has been in the news lately. The talk of the town is the recent announcement he will be stepping aside to let other seeds grow at Apple. The business press, the general press, the blogosphere, and just about everybody else has waxed poetic about the “greatest CEO of all time” saying that this “boy wonder” has shaped the very nature of our lives with his genius.
It’s all true, but here in Palo Alto, Steve Jobs isn’t just an icon, he’s also the guy who lives down the street.
