The tech industry was shocked yesterday by the announcement of Steve Jobs’ resignation as CEO of Apple. He will remain as Chairman of the Board of the company he co-founded 35 years ago, therefore it is not time for goodbyes; nevertheless everyone feel this is an historic moment for the entire industry.
The news has been covered by all kind of media (some of my favorite bloggers included: John Gruber, Seth Godin, Jason Fried, Marco Arment, Matt Mullenweg, Robert Scoble, Dave Winer), so I’m only going to add a personal note here.
I am just a newbie in the macworld, I finally convinced myself to buy my first Macintosh computer at the beginning of 2008. However the moment I became a Mac and Apple user I discovered a new world literally made of passion for products, software, the industry at large, its culture and history, that I had never experienced using Windows machines.
