Pixar's statement reinforces Steve Jobs' visionary quality: "He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined."
The ripples from Steve Jobs' death are still being processed, of course. As people put his accomplishments, personality and impact into perspective, there's an obvious spike of interest in "Things Jobs."
Jobs' former company, Pixar, took a while yesterday (in internet terms) to say anything officially, too, but their site now has a dedicated image and statement about its former CEO.
When Jobs found out in February that his time was short, according to the New York Times, the first ripple started moving through his social and professional community -- some getting a slip of time to say goodbye.
The ripples will continue for the rest of the world much, much longer.
