Steve Jobs Commencement Address

With the recent death of Steve Jobs--one of the real geniuses of our time--I thought that public speaking students (and actually just about anyone) would enjoy reading a commencement speech he delivered some years ago. I think this is a wonderful speech and I tried to reprint it in the last edition of my public speaking book but, unfortunately, permission was denied. But, it's a great speech and, fortunately, readily available online. I think students will find this interesting, relevant, instructive, and inspirational.

I felt sad about the sudden demise of Steve. Though I am not connected to him in any way neither I am a technical professional nor I use any of the Apple products, I have made a suggestion some time ago when I learnt that he is suffering from the terminal disease suggesting that there is a doctor in the State of Andhra Pradesh, India who has successfully treated many people suffering from even the 4th stage of terminal disease of any nature. Some how my suggestion either did not reach Steve or it must have been brushed away. But I sincerely convey my condolences to his family.
