Official STEVE JOBS DAY in California2011-10-17
According to a Twitter message sent by California Governor Jerry Brown late Friday, this Sunday has been declared "Steve Jobs Day" within the state.
The full text of Brown's proclamation is below:
"In his life and work, Steve Jobs embodied the California dream. To call him influential would be an understatement. His innovations transformed an industry, and the products he conceived and shepherded to market have changed the way the entire world communicates. Most importantly, his vision helped put powerful technologies, once the exclusive domain of big business and government, in the hands of ordinary consumers. We have only just begun to see the outpouring of creativity and invention that this democratization of technology has made possible.
It is fitting that we mark this day to honor his life and achievements as a uniquely Californian visionary. He epitomized the spirit of a state that an eager world watches to see what will come next." (source PCMAGAZINE).
