10 Steve Jobs videos worth the watch.

Update: Steve Jobs has passed away. Here’s our tribute full of quotes, videos. Here’s another.

Since The News, and The Contemplation of Death as a Reminder and Motivating force for a Life Well-Lived, I’ve been watching Steve Jobs videos.

The man ranks among the heroes of a new and better paradigm for a more elegant, responsible and innovative world: Yvon Chouinard, etc. Of course, Apple is far from perfect, as Jobs would be the first to admit. But what he and it has done to connect the world and, as he says below, solve essential human problems instead of merely providing more entertainment and distraction is nothing less than world-tilting.

Here’s a few of the best I’ve found. If there’s one I’ve missed worth the watch, please offer the link in comments. ~ ed.
