Steve Jobs raises the bar on commencement speeches

This is dedicated to the colleague who had the timing and judgment to share this remarkable work with me.

If you haven’t read this speech in its entirety, do it now.  If you’re a fan of speechwriting and speech-giving, it covers every base:  in the person’s own voice, symmetry, focus, perfect length, power.  If you’re looking for inspiration, motivation and clarity, it has what you need.  If you want to understand why some of us came to Silicon Valley and why we stay, this gives you the answer.  If you need something to read from the world of business that captures why we should do business and what should be its fuel, this is your resource.
