“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
-- Steve Jobs, Stanford commencement speech, June 2005
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.
