Steve Jobs was famously quoted in 1981 saying that “we want to make computers that will change the world. We want to put a ding in the universe.” He didn’t simply set out to make a better computer. He set out to completely re-invent the way we view and use technology. Jobs and Apple brought computers from the back room to the living room, and then into the palm of our hands. His legacy lives on in virtually every office, home, school and coffee shop around the world. An indelible footprint on the modern era.
In 1952, Dr. Virginia Apgar devised a simple and repeatable method for evaluating the health of a newborn child, the Apgar Score. To this day, her one-minute test is the first wellness checkpoint for babies around the world. Dr. Apgar’s brilliantly conceived examination has saved countless newborn lives, and impacted each of us in a profound way.
Mark Zuckerberg and his college roommates launched Facebook in 2004 from their dorm room. Less than a decade later Facebook has over one billion active users. 1 out of every 7 humans on the planet use Facebook to connect, share, chat, and spy on their co-workers. Facebook changed the 21st century. It is utterly and completely ubiquitous. Under Zuckerberg’s visionary leadership, Facebook continues to thrive and evolve, becoming the engine that not only powers the social web, but is actively shaping the future of the internet and mobile technology.
