Apple Store’s Tribute to Steve Jobs – October 8, 2011

Just three days after Steve Job’s untimely death, the already recognizable Apple store facade had been transformed into a colorful tribute to Apple’s founder & savior.  I was, and remain, amazed at the content and sheer number of messages people were leaving on post-it notes stuck to the store’s windows.  The glass was nearly full of messages written on the popular, and colorfully diverse, 3″x3″ squares in a number of different languages.


While it is always sad when someone is taken (especially when they are still so relatively young), I can’t imagine a professional athlete, or movie star, or even a president or other world leader receiving any greater of a response from such a diverse crowd.  The messages ranged from simple “R.I.P.s,” to statements such as “You Changed the World for the Better,” to even comparing Steve Jobs to Isaac Newton, Copernicus, & Thomas Edison.  Personally, I’m not sure I would place him in the category of those figures, but strong statements such as those further confirm our growing reliance on technological gadgets such as cell phones and tablets.
