Having said that, I am a John-Nash-Fan for his math equilibrium that we even dedicated entire operating system to his name, you would have remembered that from over 10 years ago when we noted in the old forums that we were looking for a good name for the marketplace platform we have created, and since John Nash’s Equilibrium is a perfectly detailed recipe for auctions, and coincidently, his name matched mine, it was presumed that NASH OS would be a perfect homage to illustrate his genius equilibrium to everyone. So it took us over 11 years to reach the point that his equilibrium is finally has a physical face and it is called NASH OS.
The yesterday’s death of John Nash, took us by surprise, as we really wanted him to learn one day, that his equilibrium truly works in NASH OS. But it is too late now. Just wish there were more intellectual people like him out there, then we would have a better society as a whole. So we are sad because of him going away from all of us, but we are smiling of his true spirit that stays in NASH OS forever. It’s him who gave us years and years of never ending energy! We love you forever!
Rest In Peace, John! But you’re alive forever in my heart!
Having said that, I am a Steve-Jobs-Fan for his example of simple living and basic needs on daily basis, unlike many think that the second richest person in the USA would have the most out of his life before he dies, he didn’t.
A paradox that a living ‘demi-god’ as he was for many of you, wasn’t really treating himself like one. Yup! He pitched his merchandise like a persian-in-blood merchant from the 14th century convincing you to buy his merchandise (remember the persians were the most crafty sellers back in ancient times? ) and he always talked the straight line, like he constantly tried to calculate the shortest route between Point-A (aka a seller) and Point-B (aka a buyer), and finally we all know now that he secretly knew his last day that he will be with us until (maybe thats why he was in a hurry with all his awesome gadgetry to make sure we got it before he dies).
And this secret date is finally known to all of us: 10-5-2011 – the ‘ten-fiver’ as it will be memorized among those who praised and cherished the ‘biggest-denominator’ of all recent times – SPJ (Steve Paul Jobs) .
I tip my hat to you, Steve, for being the only good example of a positive stubbornness. You knew you will win the world ahead of the rest, and you ‘ruthlessly’ did win the world! Again, the world is NOT better off without you!!! What people cannot understand in their majority that a good pitcher in any game of pitching is the one that cannot be replaced quickly. There will be many years before a true same replacement will be found. I tried many times to get this point a cross of our customer minds that if Nash stops any development then there will be no true replacement found. There will be alot of fakers claiming they have the 150 or 500 features and mods all toggable and controlled from admin panel – but it will be many years wasted by you before you find any imaginable replacement for 25,000+ features and mods all toggable and controlled from admin panel that Nash got it done already for you to use on your site.
Rest In Peace, Steve! But the example you set will live forever in my heart!
Stay Hungry, Folks! People like Steve J. or Nash B. don’t come your way too often in anyone’s lifetime.
