Steve Jobs Remembered: the Most Celebrated CEO of the Last Century [Gallery]



Steve Jobs as the Muse

Examples of people using Steve jobs as inspiration for their own creativity are legion. Here are just a few favorites:

An ethereal portrait made with aqua interface icons.

    I think he was the best CEO the world will ever know.

    The last photo is a heart breaker.

    A great reminder that Steve was, above everything else people write about him, a person.


    Hope New Balance do a Steve charity shoe, he must have been their most high profile brand ambassador.

    the last picture breaks my heart … the look of a man that knew he didn’t have much time left … 

  • cheryl kelly

    And he made being a geek a sexy thing.  It’s strange how the death of a CEO you’ve never met can break your heart. I suppose it’s because he gave so much of his.

    I think it’s unapropriate to include the picture of Steve Jobs and John Sculley because as everybody knows, Steve hated John Sculley!!

  • HerbalEd

    And yet, Sculley has been saying how much he admired Jobs and that forcing him out of the company was the biggest mistake of his career. Ironically, although Jobs was forced out because the board thought he was too young, and incapable of CEOing Apple, yesterday I heard Sculley in two different interviews say he thought Jobs was the greatest CEO in history (or words to that effect).
