“Gracefully exiting infinite loops”

Steve Jobs passed away last night. Don’t really need to add much to the stuff that has been, and will be written about him, suffice to say he made great things that I like to use.

Apple Computers famously reside at 1 Infinite Loop, in Cupertino, California. This morning whilst Twitter became a stream of tributes to Steve, one random, totally unrelated post caught my eye. It was from an account that Tweets posts to a Processing help forum. Someone was innocently asking a programming query, and unexpectedly created a small, strange, fitting moment.

Which, the more I think about it, is actually much more than a simple accidental pun about where Apple Computers is.

I hope we all get to gracefully exit the infinite loops.
