Admirers of Steve Jobs are gathering at Apple stores around the Bay Area and around the country tonight to pay their respects to an icon in our industry.

Steve Jobs passed away today; he was 56.

These mourners are developers, web designers and fans of Apple’s beautifully designed products. We took some time this evening to speak to those who gathered at the Apple store in downtown San Francisco and to ask them a simple question: How did Steve Jobs change your life?

In some cases, Jobs’ work touched many aspects of their lives. From the iPods they listen to on the way to work to the computers they use to create websites, Apple permeates the culture and labor of web work.

VentureBeat thanks Steve Streza, Cory Moll and Stanley Jones for sharing their thoughts with us tonight.
