"We think the Mac will sell zillions, but we didn't build the Mac for anybody else. We built it for ourselves. We were the group of people who were going to judge whether it was great or not. We weren't going to go out and do market research. We just wanted to build the best thing we could build.

When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through."

Tonight I had dinner with a few people who know Steve Jobs' wife Laurene Powell Jobs and/or worked directly with Steve and they all praised his wife as being both kind and strong.

This photo is one that came up several times at dinner. Shot by Lea Suzuki of the San Francisco Chronicle at the end of the keynote address to the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6th shows the strong relationship they both have.

It also shows the emotion Steve had as he finished what would be his last performance on stage.

Over the next few days I bet we get to know Laurene a bit more. I have no idea if she wants the spotlight or not, I imagine that they were so private for a reason, but she will play a key role in the future of Silicon Valley no matter how public she wants to be.

I remember how the Hewletts and Packards reshaped Northern California through their daughter's interests (the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a great example of that).

Laurene Jobs now is one of Silicon Valley's most powerful women and we don't know much about her.

The press is going to push in on her over the next few days, to try to find out more about her.

I hope they give her and their kids space to move and think over the next few weeks as they grieve, but a new chapter in Steve Jobs' legacy is about to start and she and her kids are in control of that.

I can't imagine that it's an easy role to be thrust out into the public, with all eyes looking at you, the way she's about to be.

Let's all send some of this love that's been gushing all over the Internet her way. She's going to need it now.

Last night the first person I saw after learning of the passing of Steve Jobs was +Ann Handley and we talked about if there are any other CEO in the world that we'd feel any sense of loss from and the only person we came up with was +Richard Branson

When I looked at Twitter this morning one of the first tweets I saw was from him talking about the loss. His post is short and perfect.
