Crazy ones

I know you’ve read/heard this n times, lets make it n+1 because i felt listening to it today (again).

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. – Apple Inc

AllThingsD’s tribute to Steve Jobs

Here is the link to collection from allthingsd.com, http://allthingsd.com/tag/steve-jobs/

Watched the tribute from Larry Ellison and Ed Catmul today, it was quite nice. Key takeaway – Attention to details and Being self – Say what you like, Say what you dont.

+ and @ file attributes on OS X

xattr -l <filename>

eg. Files downloaded from Internet. When you open them for first time, the system asks you whether you want to open it as its downloaded from Internet, and it doesnt the next time onwards.
