I am not one for heroes, but the what I took from Apple under Steve Jobs was that one could be both an artist and a geek, creative and also technically skilled - not like I'd been taught at school, where you were a thinker or a doer and nothing in-between. Coding was just a medium like any other, and being good at it meant you could be a better artist in that medium.

And this taught me that there was a _point_ to all of this tinkering, and it wasn't just something that was supposed to help with getting a job or be fun for its own sake - it could produce something worthwhile and expressive and real.

So now, I think "it's a shame that he's dead - I wish that hadn't happened. So. Where was I with that code again?"
