Please share your thoughts about Steve Jobs

Everybody has an opinion about Steve Jobs. Please tell me what you think of him and how he has impacted your life in this brief survey.

Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, passed away earlier this week at the age of 56. In the process of writing about how he impacted my life in my blog, I created an image of him. To make this image, I collected quotes and articles that were written about him in the day following his passing. The quotes were from such notables like President Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, Guy Kawasaki, and Bill Gates, to name a few. Using these descriptive words of Steve Jobs, I created a word cloud in the form of his soon-to-be iconic image on

In the world cloud, the font size of the words is related to the frequency of usage of the words; the larger the font size, the more frequently that word is used to describe Steve Jobs. This picture essentially represents how these people define him, remember him.

I now want to be more purposeful in creating the same image using words from people who never met him but whose lives may have been impacted by him. Could you please complete my one-minute survey about Steve Jobs? I am also going to conduct sentiment analysis on your comments to understand the sentiment behind them. So… your survey responses help to create art and advance science. In addition to feeling good about yourself, I will notify you when this project is completed (if you provide your email address in the survey).

The more people who complete the survey, the more interesting the image(s) become(s) (e.g., look at age differences in sentiment). Please consider sharing the page using your social media savvy.
