The first time I snow skied, I remember thinking, "I got to EXPERIENCE the snow!"

My interaction with Steve Jobs' products and services did not affect me in a big way on a beginner level slope, or later when I reminisced on that one-time adventure.
I sort of grew up, technologically, under his tutelage.
While it's achingly sad for such a generational icon's life to have been cut so short, it's also uncannily providential that his legacy speaks unarguably to dreaming and living. Right now.
