California celebrates Steve Jobs Day



screen_shot_2011-10-16_at_12.54.07_pm.pngCalifornia, and undoubtedly the rest of the world, is celebrating Steve Jobs Day today (10/16/2011) after Gov. Jerry Brown declared it so recently. Apple is holding a special memorial event at Stanford University to celebrate Jobs' life, the same place where he delivered the now iconic Stanford commencement address in which he shared his thoughts on life and death after his first bout with pancreatic cancer. The speech is loaded with quotes that make you think about the importance of finding your true calling.

Charlie White over at turned me on to a new video today that's an ingenious compilation of sounds from Apple products mixed with samples from Jobs' commencement speech. It was produced by AzRmusic. It's a fitting tribute to a man who created so many innovative products that changed the way we live.
