steve jobs

As someone who is deeply involved in the world of technology, as well as someone who has owned an Apple computer since the early 90s,  the news of Steve Jobs passing this week brought up a lot of feelings, mainly about mortality, life and the incredible ways we as a human race are able to communicate with each other. That said, the articles in this week’s From Our Friends reflect some of those emotions, including posts about meditation, cancer, happiness, sustainability and, of course, a wonderfully innovative tribute to the man himself.
