Stay Hungry Stay Foolish by contraomnes Stay Hungry Stay Foolish by contraomnes
Personal piece I did after Steve Jobs passed. For all his flaws, dude was a artist at what he did. Much respect.

I could explain in detail what it's about that'd ruin the fun. I'd rather here what people think it is. Troll comments amuse me~

I heard that Steve Jobs was a dick to his employees. He would embarrass people in meetings and would fiercely reject other ideas sometimes. His employees would sometimes refer to him as "Steve Jobs: that ass-hole." He also got a girl pregnant and refused to pay for child support. When he was dying he wanted to contact his daughter but she wouldn't have anything to do with him.

That's the kind of stuff shared in the books about him. My Father read a couple and told me. Not sure if this piece says anything about that, though....

His wife approved of the books.

Is it like a mix between the LSD he did and a Macintosh, right?

Maybe this was sorta Steve Jobs's mixing paint, his first real painting as an artist by which you remember him and through which he succeeded. I don't know that much about macs though, not very common where I am. Really awesome work :thumbsup::) Was I close or what?

I thought I'd go for the probably wrooooong simplistic view of a jawbreaker - always changing flavours but remaining the same tasty product xD

I'm read your piece in the following way:
Modern macs do not use legacy icons, but early mac iconography transcends 'usefulness' (as measured by implementation into new products). The design and style which typified early-gen mac computers was, essentially, so pure and informative that even though modern macs no longer use the same icons verbatim, the older iconography is remembered and channeled as beautiful art all on its own. To put it more plainly, you have compared an old mac design to a fossilized geode, which when cracked open reveals a deep inner beauty.

ps - also identifying as a pc user, but this is great :)

Those look like elevation maps inside the computer. A metaphor on how Jobs helped map out the Mac's inner workings, perhaps?
