From our CEO, Max Thelen:
A year ago October 5th, the creative world lost its de facto leader, Steve Jobs. There’s been a lot happening this past year, and excitement has remained high with the launch of the iPhone 5 and new versions of Windows Phone 8, and the Amazon, Nook and other Android devices. While we eagerly await the launch of Microsoft Surface and other Windows 8 devices, it is clear now that we have lost a vital force for change in our world. The IOS maps debacle does not spell the end of Apple by any means, but it serves as a reminder of the high bar that Steve set for us, which we now miss anxiously.
Each of us has a moral obligation to advance Steve’s vision. For all the people.
So, what would Steve do? He would want us all to follow his advice to, “Stay hungry, Stay foolish!”
Please join Filter on Friday, October 5, in remembering Steve and paying homage.
