Apple fans the world over are coming together to pay tribute to Steve Jobs this Friday, October 14, with a day dedicated in his honor. Steve Jobs Day encourages fans to admire Steve’s work and say thank you to one of the world’s greatest innovators.
The project was set up on September 23, 2011, simply to say thank you to a man whose work has had a huge impact on everyone. In light of his passing on October 5, however, the day will be dedicated to celebrating Steve’s life and the legacy he leaves behind.
So how can you take part? Well, according the organizers of Steve Jobs Day, there are three ways in which you can get involved:
TALK ABOUT STEVE
– Tweet (#stevejobsday) or post a Facebook status update about how Steve and his work at Apple have affected your life.
– Favorite products
– First Apple product you used/owned
– Why you love his work
– How he’s inspired you
LOOK LIKE STEVE
– Wear a black turtleneck to work. To school. Anywhere and everywhere.
(You can even go full Steve and wear blue jeans and tennis shoes.)
– Take a photo of yourself in your black turtleneck and post it to Facebook, Twitter or your photo sharing platform of choice.
– Update your Facebook and Twitter profile photo with you as Steve
