Video of Celebration of Steve Jobs
On October 19th, there was an event on Apple's campus celebrating Steve Jobs's life. This event was not secret, but the live video feed that connected all employees of Apple Stores to the event was not widely shared.
The event is great, and each contributor is fantastic. It's a great way to remember and celebrate Jobs.
It also is a great look at what Cook and the Apple Leadership wants to impart to a post-Jobs Apple. Mainly, keep thinking different, keep championing your own efforts. Do what has made Apple great, don't fall into the trap of simply asking yourself: "What would Steve do?"
That event link is still active and shows the recorded video of the event in it's entirety. Go watch it if you're interested.
