Think Different

I was born in 1995 during the tech boom in Silicon Valley.

Growing up around the internet and smart devices, I never stopped to think about how these innovations came to fruition. 

I’ve spent the last month learning about Microsoft, Apple, Google and Yahoo, unearthing fascinating details from the past that have informed our present. 

This weekend I finished the Steve Jobs biography, which was hefty and insightful to say the least. 

In the final chapters, the author talks about the legacy Steve left behind at Apple and with the world. An iconic Apple commercial that aired in the 80’s during the Super Bowl summarizes his mission brilliantly. I thought it was worth sharing.

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
