You have directly affected the consciousness of hundred of millions around the world through your uncommon grasp of the most critical elements guiding the human interaction with technology.
You opened new paths in aesthetics, transforming mundane technologies into design marvels which each of us absolutely had to take home.
You set standards of quality and reliability that all others could only strive to emulate, but never imitate.
You established a standard for every executive running a large corporation, completely ignoring the corrupting siren songs of Wall Street brokerages. You couldn’t be bought. That maintenance of independence enabled a clarity of thinking and an unadulterated direction of America’s greatest company.
It was a pleasure to have participated in those earliest days of the ride.
All best wishes as you continue your voyage of discovery.
