Apple’s official celebration of Steve Jobs’ life is to be held at the company’s Cupertino, California campus on Wednesday, October 19th it was announced today, according to MacGeneration. Tim Cook, Apple CEO, sent out the following email to Apple staff today:
Team, Like many of you, I have experienced the saddest days of my lifetime and shed many tears during the past week. But I’ve found some comfort in the extraordinary number of tributes and condolences from people all over the world who were touched by Steve and his genius. And I’ve found comfort in both telling and listening to stories about Steve. Although many of our hearts are still heavy, we are planning a celebration of his life for Apple employees to take time to remember the incredible things Steve achieved in his life and the many ways he made our world a better place. The celebration will be held on Wednesday, October 19, at 10am in the outdoor amphitheater on the Infinite Loop campus. We’ll have more details on AppleWeb closer to the date, including arrangements for employees outside of Cupertino. I look forward to seeing you there. TimCurrently, there has been no word on whether this event will be open to the public (very unlikely) or streamed for the world to see (that would be nice). We’ll keep you updated.
