A change-oriented mindset, especially for technology, is one where you force yourself to let go of the models you developed for how things work and learn new approaches. Re-wiring yourself and letting go of that muscle memory and those patterns that often took years to develop and perfect is incredibly difficult in a technical sense. It is also difficult emotionally. So much of our own sense of empowerment comes from mastery of the tools we use and so changing or replacing tools means we are no longer masters but back to being on equal footing with lots of people. No one likes resetting their station on the tech hierarchy.

It is remarkable how the people who best knew Jobs, those who worked with him for years and were his friends, have no idea how he would have done things, while people who write for online publications are the ones who knew him best. Very remarkable. Interesting current trend in modern long-distance telepathy. Someone should write a paper about it. And shred it.

Discovery takes the stage. What matters is what you feel in that moment when a song that is just right comes on and punches you in the stomach. Excitement. The beautiful ache of not knowing. You turn the volume up. A single connection that branches in different directions. You hit repeat. It stays with you forever.

Ricordo le interminabili sessioni di copia, da CD a cassetta prima e da CD a CD poi, come alcuni dei migliori pomeriggi della mia adolescenza.
