I really love this perspective for some reason. Maybe from growing up on science fiction - Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the like?

Anyone want to place early bets on Steve Jobs being named Time Magazine's Person of the Year?

Love +Don Graham 's schoolboy enthusiasm about Washington Post's new beta reader. And +Robert Scoble ain't too bad, either :)

Wow. I +love+ this new "social reader" from Washington Post.

+Don Graham, chairman of the Washington Post company (damn smart guy who has seen a TON in the publishing world) and I talk about this.

We talk about porn, too. "I wouldn't use this app for that," he says.

Really interesting insights into why these IDENTITY ENGINES are going to change everything.

And if you think that Google won't do this I have a nice bridge to sell you in San Francisco (Google is working on a new reader like this code-named "Propeller.")

You gotta be on Facebook to try this out: https://apps.facebook.com/wpsocialreader/

The ambiguity of reality. Thanks, +Bill Glover for re-sharing.

Yes or no - it depends on your point of view.

A reminder to look at things from all sides before judging?

Great story, well told. It's the details that makes Steve Jobs - details because he cares.

Icon Ambulance

One Sunday morning, January 6th, 2008 I was attending religious services when my cell phone vibrated. As discreetly as possible, I checked the phone and noticed that my phone said "Caller ID unknown". I choose to ignore.

After services, as I was walking to my car with my family, I checked my cell phone messages. The message left was from Steve Jobs. "Vic, can you call me at home? I have something urgent to discuss" it said.

Before I even reached my car, I called Steve Jobs back. I was responsible for all mobile applications at Google, and in that role, had regular dealings with Steve. It was one of the perks of the job.

"Hey Steve - this is Vic", I said. "I'm sorry I didn't answer your call earlier. I was in religious services, and the caller ID said unknown, so I didn't pick up".

Steve laughed. He said, "Vic, unless the Caller ID said 'GOD', you should never pick up during services".

I laughed nervously. After all, while it was customary for Steve to call during the week upset about something, it was unusual for him to call me on Sunday and ask me to call his home. I wondered what was so important?

"So Vic, we have an urgent issue, one that I need addressed right away. I've already assigned someone from my team to help you, and I hope you can fix this tomorrow" said Steve.

"I've been looking at the Google logo on the iPhone and I'm not happy with the icon. The second O in Google doesn't have the right yellow gradient. It's just wrong and I'm going to have Greg fix it tomorrow. Is that okay with you?"

Of course this was okay with me. A few minutes later on that Sunday I received an email from Steve with the subject "Icon Ambulance". The email directed me to work with Greg Christie to fix the icon.

Since I was 11 years old and fell in love with an Apple II, I have dozens of stories to tell about Apple products. They have been a part of my life for decades. Even when I worked for 15 years for Bill Gates at Microsoft, I had a huge admiration for Steve and what Apple had produced.

But in the end, when I think about leadership, passion and attention to detail, I think back to the call I received from Steve Jobs on a Sunday morning in January. It was a lesson I'll never forget. CEOs should care about details. Even shades of yellow. On a Sunday.

To one of the greatest leaders I've ever met, my prayers and hopes are with you Steve.

-Vic
