Ever since the passing of Steve Jobs on October 5, Apple has been asking people to email their personal memories and favorite quotes of the Apple co-founder to firstname.lastname@example.org. We didn’t really know at the time what Apple intended to do with the emails once they received them, but the company has now launched a “Remembering Steve” tribute page, containing the messages they received.
Housed at apple.com/SteveJobs, the webpage features a scrolling list of the messages sent in by Apple fans and customers, along with a short introduction urging people to continue adding to the messages already received…
“Over a million people from all over the world have shared their memories, thoughts, and feelings about Steve. One thing they all have in common — from personal friends to colleagues to owners of Apple products — is how they’ve been touched by his passion and creativity. You can view some of these messages below. And share your own at email@example.com“
Steve Jobs died on October 5 after a long battle with cancer. He was 56 years old.
After reading some of the messages sent in by people who never even met the man, we’re reminded just how he affected so many of us. Rest in peace, Steve.
