The Legacy of Steve Jobs

Pete Springer/OPB

Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, died last night. He was 56 years old. Jobs has been celebrated as one of the great innovators of 20th century, and maybe the greatest industrialist of our time. His long reach spanned far beyond computers, significantly shaping the music and movie industries in the digital age. 

We will be talking with two Oregonians whose lives were influenced by Steve Jobs’ innovation. One grew up on Apple computers and now owns a iPhone app company. The other was 18-years-old when he was hired by Apple, to work on the first Machintosh computer.

Do you use Apple products? What is the legacy of Steve Jobs? How did Steve Jobs inspire you?
