California declares October 16 as “Steve Jobs Day”

“Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.”, said Horace Greeley.

Steve Jobs was a really popular person. Indeed, he is. But to me one thing counts more than being popular and that is being respected. Steve Jobs was not only popular but also was respected amongst his friends, family, colleagues and even amongst his rivals. He was one of the most famous personality and technologist born in the 20th century.

To his tribute, the Californian Government has declared the October 16 as “Steve Jobs Day”. The declaration was announced by California Govt. representative Jerry Brown via a Twitter post.

Adding up to it a memorial service has also been scheduled to take place on Wednesday at the Apple Cupertino campus, California. The Discovery Channel will also air a very special documentary “iGenius: How Steve Jobs Changed the World.” which will be hosted by “Mythbusters” stars Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman for one hour.
