All you need to know about Steve Jobs’ influence

I woke up this morning, and went through my usual routine: grab my iPhone and check the time, (7:15am, awesome). Then it’s over to facebook, to see if anything noteworthy has happened overnight.

The first thing that grabs my attention is that two of my friends status’ are “R.I.P Steve Jobs”. My immediate reaction is “it’s a hoax”, after all, the internet seems to love pretending people are dead, so I fire up Safari to verify the news.

I go straight to Hacker News, which is normally the third stop on my morning routine anyway. If Steve really has passed, Hacker News will certainly have some stories about it.

I didn’t expect this:


Every single story on the front page of Hacker News is about Steve Jobs. No matter what you think of Steve Jobs, you have to be amazed by the profound influence he’s had not only on the technology world, but everyday life.
