On Steve Jobs' passing on October 5th, Tim Cook sent out an email to employees saying Apple would soon hold an event celebrating Jobs' life. As noted by MacGeneration, today Tim Cook has sent out another email letting employees know that the event will take place on October 19th. From the email:
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.
As noted in the email, the event is closed to the public and only open to Apple employees. Apple's celebration of Steve Jobs's life is just one of the myriad tributes that have occured around the globe since Jobs's death. Non-Apple employees who still want to send a personal message to the company about Steve Jobs's impact on them can do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
