Tributes pour in for former Pixar CEO Steve Jobs
Former Apple and Pixar CEO Steve Jobs has died at the age of 56.
Tributes have poured in throughout the day from leading figures in the worlds of technology and politics, ranging from Barack Obama and Bill Gates to Jobs’ Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak.
The mainstream news sites have put together comprehensive reports on Jobs’ life, career and impact on the technology industry. You can find a few selected links at the foot of this article.
But one video that has been getting a lot of airplay, and which seems appropriate to link to here, is Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address, made a year after he was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and embracing the theme of how to truly live before you die.
It seems a fitting tribute to one of the age’s great entrepreneurs and creative thinkers.
