More than a million people remember Steve

Apple said today that more than a million people from around the world share their memories, thoughts, and feelings about Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder who died on Oct. 5. The remembrances are running in a live page that scrolls from one tribute to the next in an unending expression of grief and respect for the departed tech leader. Jobs died of pancreatic cancer at age 56.

Apple to hold Steve Jobs celebration on Oct. 19

Apple chief executive Tim Cook said today the company will hold a celebration of Steve Jobs life at a special event on Oct. 19. In a memo to employees, Cook said the event will take place at 10 am at Apple’s outdoor amphitheater at its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. Although the memo didn’t say so, the event is not likely to be open to the public. Silicon Valley hasn’t seen an occasion like this since the public memorial service for David Packard, co-founder of Hewlett-Packard, who died in 1996 at the age of 83. That event was held at the Memorial Church at Stanford University.

Steve Jobs’ death reminds Silicon Valley that it needs to remember its history

Silicon Valley isn’t a place with a long memory. There are plenty of people who migrate here in search of wealth, without knowing much about its history. To them, only the newest technology is important, not the stuff of the past. They race ahead from one bubble to the next, oblivious to the fact that there are such things as boom-and-bust cycles.
