If Not for Steve…

My husband surprised me with a Macintosh Performa 575 in 1994.

I was Apple to the core from the beginning.

I joke that I worship at the Altar of Steve Jobs.

So today’s announcement of his passing, while expected, is still horribly sad.

My computing life, no, my entire life, is so totally entwined in Apple, I can honestly say if not for Steve Jobs and his vision, this blog would not exist.

Emergiblog is six years old now. Because of this blog I have made friends worldwide, traveled across the country, and was inspired to return to school for my BSN – online.

Steve said technology doesn’t change lives.

It changed miine.

It changed ours.

For the better.


So thank you, Steve.

For everything.
