Kudos to Tim Cook and Apple Computer

Posted by Patrick Townsend on Oct 30, 2014 7:01:00 PM

"We pave the sunlit path toward justice together, brick by brick. This is my brick."

Tim Cook, Apple CEO

Today was one of the most inspiring days of my life.

Tim Cook’s beautiful and courageous and inspiring coming out as a gay person will be noted as one of the significant events of our lifetimes. In one simple act Tim Cook took Apple Computer from a company that makes wonderful things, to a wonderful company; from a company known for its ability to make stuff, to a company known for its ability to inspire and lead humanity. He blazed a path for all of us, and changed how we will relate to the LGBT community forever. It was a beautiful and courageous act in itself, and it advanced us all towards a more humane, towards a more morally sane, future.

We are all deeply in Tim Cook’s debt.

We should not forget that behind every CEO is a board of directors, and a management team, and a large group of employees. Let’s recognize that every part of Apple Computer stands behind Tim Cook today. No one works alone, or leads alone, or can succeed alone. This was truly a day for everyone at Apple Computer to be proud of.

We honor you all.

Apple didn’t invent cool, but under Steve Jobs they came to make the most cool stuff. And they appropriated coolness as a part of their brand. Now, for the first time, with Tim Cook’s leadership, they really ARE cool.

It’s not what you make, it’s who you are.

Good Lord, for the first time in a long time I just want to buy something that Apple makes.

Well done Tim Cook, and well done everyone at Apple! This day belongs to you.
