The computer industry lost a highly regarded entrepreneur this week. The man who designed the Macintosh, iPhone, iPad and iPod and might have gone on to make even more died of pancreatic cancer last Wednesday. May his soul rest in peace. There was genuine sorrow mixed with admiration for this man. All day I ran his remarkable graduation speech to Stanford graduates.

We took a quick diversion from our usual studies into current events. The class broke up into approximately 8 groups of two or three. Each group took 7-8 years of Steve Jobs life and came up with a quick presentation. Some used power point and others used Scratch. They were given 20 minutes to design their presentation and about 3 minutes to present. At the end of the period the entire class had some exposure to Steve Jobs remarkable achievements.
