Commencement Address by Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple and Pixar (and NeXT), gave the commencement address at Stanford this year. Some newsreports called the speech morbid, because it talked about death.

".... Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true."

Obviously, I disagree (or why would I post it here?)

PS: I disagree with the news-reports.
