Steve Jobs: 1955 - 2011

California Governor Jerry Brown has appointed this Sunday as “Steve Jobs Day” in California, a day to honor Apple’s late co-founder and longtime guiding force. That same day, Apple, Inc. is holding a memorial for Jobs at Stanford University.

Stanford is, of course, the college where Jobs gave his now-more-famous-than-ever commencement speech in 2005, from which many of his most popular quotes derive from, including “Stay hungry, stay foolish.” The Stanford memorial event, being held Sunday evening, is a private, invitation-only service. Apple is said to be primarily inviting major tech industry executives and other individuals who were close to Jobs. A private funeral was held for Jobs last Friday, and Apple is also planning a memorial event specifically for Apple employees on October 19th, at its Cupertino campus.

Governor Brown announced Steve Jobs Day via his account on Twitter.
