A global outpouring of grief and gratitude.

As MG Siegler alludes to, the response to Steve Jobs’ death has been different than for other deaths.

Different than when a celebrity dies, and folks scramble to get in on the news, and the media shows images of the celebrity’s life.

Different than when a politician dies, and one country mourns, but others celebrate.

What we are seeing is a global outpouring of grief and gratitude and recognition.

“He’s someone who will be talked about a thousand years from now.” – MG Siegler

The response fits the person lost.
