I was wondering how the death of the poor Steve Jobs has influenced social medias, in this particular case twitter.

With a short search on tredistic I’ve noticed that the messages with the word “Steve” reached the 17.6% of the tweets at 2AM GMT+2, and slowly fading down, with another lower peak of 8,5% of “twitter share” around 9AM when Europe was waking up.

What’s also interesting is that before the sad announce, the conversations about Steve Jobs and his health status was around zero and then they did an exponential growth. Now, a day later his death, the buzz is slowly going back to zero again as a sign that most people was talking about that because they felt obliged to follow the trend of speaking and honor that awesome person.

As you can see in the chart below, even the conversation about Apple did not reach such a level of conversation during the keynote presenting the iPhone 4s, and did a big leap on the wave  of Steve’s death.

‎”No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it, and that is how it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It’s life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.” Steve Jobs – Stanford University 2005

Steve in the 100 most influential people

Last week, while I was coming back home from a leisure trip, I was reading “The 100 most influential people in the world” from the Time.

In the Thinkers category, there were Steve Jobs presented by some text rows from Jeff Koons (an artist based in New York City), here there is his words:

Apple’s core ideal always been to make people’s experience of computing as accessible as possible. As a young man, Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, decided to be the Beatles of computing. I once said that I make what the Beatles would have made if they made sculpture, and I can appreciate how Steve, 55, applies ethos of optimism to his work.The tools he has given us, from the Macs at my studio to the iPhone in my pocket, are like clean, new windows, fitting between our selves and our work elegantly, naturally and unobtrusively.

It is great to see Steve stay true to his vision. I can imagine some young artist saying today, “I make what Steve Jobs would make if he made a sculpture.”

Steve on Flash

Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short.

That’s the way, and Adobe must follow Steve’s advice…
