/// Sister on Steve Jobs’s Last Words: "OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW."
Apple Co-founder and Silicon Valley legend Steve Jobs lived a life that read like an epic novel, so it’s probably no surprise that his very last words on this temporal plane would be just as dramatic. And they were: “OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.” That’s according to his sister, Mona Simpson, whose moving eulogy was published in the New York Times today. It’s well worth a read, given what a gifted writer Simpson is — she is a much respected novelist herself — and the amazing subject. Simpson opens the piece writing about her desire for her estranged father to return to her life and become the be-all-and-end-all. Instead, it turned out to be Jobs. “Even as a feminist, my whole life I’d been waiting for a man to love, who could love me,” she wrote. “For decades, I’d thought that man would be my father. When I was 25, I met that man and he was my brother.” A fitting legacy, among many.
