Tim Cook has tweeted a message in memory of Steve Jobs, on the 6th anniversary of the Apple co-founder’s death.
Along with a photo of a young Jobs, Cook chose to quote a portion of the Apple co-founder’s message to employees that was used to begin Apple’s keynote in the Steve Jobs Theater.
There’s lots of ways to be as a person, and some people express their deep appreciation in different ways, but one of the ways that I believe people express their appreciation to the rest of humanity is to make something wonderful and put it out there.
And you never meet the people, you never shake their hands, you never hear their story or tell yours, but somehow, in the act of making something with a great deal of care and love, something is transmitted there.
And it’s a way of expressing to the rest of our species our deep appreciation. So, we need to be true to who we are and remember what’s really important to us. That’s what’s going to keep Apple Apple: is if we keep us us. — Steve Jobs
Remembering Steve today. Still with us, still inspiring us. “Make something wonderful, and put it out there.” pic.twitter.com/7aOCPkwU0U

MacDailyNews Take: Six years, already. Sigh.
We miss you, Steve!
We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it. – Steve Jobs
I can’t believe it’s been 6 years. Feels like yesterday when I heard of it. 2011 feels like a different world compared to what we’re living through now. 🙁
It seems even sadder with Tim Cook as CEO.
SJ Memorials now reduced to using Twitter. Pathetic.
i remember the day when i heard the news, right after the iPhone 4S and Siri was introduced,
still chokes me up… I do not understand it, but still… miss you Steve!
Rest in peace.
No no no no no.
I want Steve to raise hell.
A common media meme is that Steve Jobs was an asshole and that his co-workers hated him. Here is Tony Fadell, the “PodFather” who was deeply involved with the iPod and the iPhone, talking about working with Steve Jobs at Apple.
Miss Steve and his many visionary accomplishments.
My other hero died two months later PSU head coach Joe Paterno.
We remember Steve …
Six years, and the tech world (and Apple) haven’t been the same since.
RIP Steve Jobs – you ARE missed.
I am so looking forward to being around Steve in the astral world. I can only imagine what he’s cooked up! Earth is pale and bereft without Steve.
