Steve Jobs Nominated for “Person of the Year”

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs has been nominated for Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” by NBC Nightly News Anchor Brian Williams.  Here is an excerpt from Brian’s nominated speech:

One guy, who changed our world, and I said to Seth Meyers as we walked across Sixth Avenue, “Just look with me on this one block walk at how he changed the world around us. Look at how he changed the world.” Not only did he change the world, but he gave us that spirit again that something was possible that you could look at a piece of plastic or glass and move your finger– that’s outlandish. You could make things bigger or smaller like that. “Oh the places you’ll go” and oh the way you will change forever the music and television industries. So may he rest in peace, Steve Jobs, and the spirit he represents, are my nominee for Person of the Year.

If Steve is selected (iHospital thinks he will be of course!) he will be the first recipient to win posthumously.  Mark Zuckerberg won in 2010 and Steve Jobs was a mentor to him as well.  It’s pretty incredible how the latest winners are all associated with how technology is changing our world. Technology has also influenced other winners over the years for the Apollo 8 Astronauts in 1968, “You” in 2006 representing the individual content creator of the Internet and of course, “The Computer” in 1982.

Steve Jobs definitely fits the mold for Time’s “Person of the Year” as it’s awarded to “a person, couple, group, idea, place, or machine that “for better or for worse, has done the most to influence the events of the year.”

Steve Jobs also appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone on October 27, 2011 for the first time.  We are happy to see Steve’s accomplishments being appreciated.
