Jerry, the reading of Steve's commencement address last night at the meeting was very much appreciated.
It was the perfect tribute.

If you would like to see the CNBC Titans biography of Steve Jobs I have compressed it into an mp4 file and it will be available to download via the following link for the next 30 days. The file size is 486.4 MB, so it may take awhile to download. Double click the .zip file that downloads and you will have the video.

Also available for the next 30 days is the video of the Steve Jobs 2005 Stanford Commencement Speech. It is only a 48.6 MB file.

May he rest in Peace. Thank you Steve Jobs.

Note that Jobs' commencement address is available at the iTunes Store, iTunes U section, in audio or video.
You can also preorder the Isaacson biography (also available in the Kindle store) and several other books and audiobooks.

I used a bit of his commencement speech in my Typography demo a few years back. It's an excellent speech.

I also recommend the long interview with Steve Jobs at the D8 conference:

Here's a nice tribute to Steve Jobs:

Tomorrow’s innovators: If they learn anything from Jobs, it should be that their vocation isn’t just about uniting commerce and technology. It’s about making the modern world more beautiful as well.

You may have to sign up to see Up From Ugliness on The New York Times.

From Macintouch today:

Colin Holgate
I hadn't seen this mentioned anywhere, but it occurred to me to check if this might be the case (which it is): The Time Magazine October 17th special edition on Steve Jobs is already available via the iPad App.
It's $4.99, and has a lot of interesting articles on Steve. The Time Magazine App itself is free.

Here's a nice piece on the similarities between Steve Jobs and Edwin Land.
