I was lucky enough to meet Tony Fadell in 2002 at Apples World Wide Developers Conference. He was a busy guy... but we connected for a brief conversation about awesomeness. He went on to create some of the most amazing gidgets and gadgets we carry in our pockets at Apple and is now working on an automagically self programming thermostat that you just want to hold.
Cheers to 99% for standing him up and asking some decent questions.
In the history of HYDLE.com… this ridiculous “TSOIGDH” entry marks my 999th public blog post since May of 2009 – When I started this crazy world of blogging ideas, thoughts and Genius vs. Not Genius intermanents and social media successes or failures.
So for the sake of getting google credit for it…
“TSOIGDH” = TURNING SHIT ON IT’S GOD DAMN HEAD
Turning shit on it’s god damn head is going to be my 1 single inspiration for the next 999 blogpost entries. I can’t wait to open up my connection layer for all my loyal readers… so I can start finding out who you actually are.
A nice little recap of the generation I was so fortunate to have grown up in. Thanks for sharing the wealth of knowledge in the biography of your life Steve Jobs. If you haven't read Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs... I suggest you try it out. But since I don't read, plan a gigantic road trip and listen to it like I did.
As 2011 draws to a close and 2012 comes upon us... I would like to insert the event of losing Steve Jobs as the most impactful story that crossed my life this past year. Welcome to the memory bank Steve, you were here before and you will forever remain.
