Legends never die. So legendary figures. They remain alive in the memory of people and this makes them immortal. Posthumous honors keep them in the memories of people.
Apple’s late co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs was honored by a number of celebrities and political figureheads, including US President Barack Obama, during the 16th annual Webby Awards, this past Tuesday on 22 May 2012.
The touching video tribute for Steve Jobs was introduced by actors Justin Long and John Hodgman, known for their roles in the popular “I’m a Mac” TV spots, and came about midway through the award show. This is the video clip:
Apart from Barack Obama, other political figures appear in the video including Former US President Bill Clinton and former Vice President Al Gore. Celebrities in the tribute include TV star Jimmy Fallon, and U2 leader Bono.
This is a classy homage to a person who certainly left his mark on technology. Even if you are not a Mac user, you cannot deny the tremendous impact that Jobs had on both desktop and mobile computing.
