They'll remember the genius

There's been a lot of really amazing tributes to Steve Jobs the past few days. This one by Eric Schmidt had a nice point -

What I remember thinking at the time is that you shouldn’t take a job unless you know how to win. I had no clue how to do what he did. When somebody tells you they’re going to do something and you say, “I don’t understand how you’re going to do that,” and they succeed? That is the ultimate humbling experience. My interactions with Steve were always like that. He was always ahead of me. When he started working on tablets, I said nobody really likes tablets. The tablets that existed were just not very good. Steve said: “No, we can build one.” One of the things about Steve is, he was always in the realm of possibility. There was a set of assumptions that Steve would make that were never crazy. They were just ahead of me.

We think of Steve Jobs now as the visionary he was. In 300 years, when people study this era, they'll all recognize his genius right away.

Most of them - our great-great-grandchilden, they won't realize how Jobs's vision was misunderstood, questions, derided, mocked for so long before he broke through. They'll remember the genius, they won't remember the struggle.

2014 Winter Olympics: World of Greatness

On Sara Alina

The 2014 Winter Olympics held in Sochi, Russia has just concluded. This is the first time that Russia hosted the Winter Olympics Games. As expected, the whole world tuned in to watch athletes from all different countries compete to get the gold. Dreams were realized as athletes won and hearts broke when they do not. But this was not the end. It is only the beginning to train harder and be a better athlete come next Winter Olympics which will be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018. All in all, it was a success as no threats were made and no untoward incidents happened. Athletes simply were there to participate, have fun and enjoy the camaraderie. It was truly exciting and thrilling to be a part of the Winter Olympics.
