Flickr Find: Digital Steve Jobs on a bookshelf
We just love it when someone uploads a photo to Flickr that not only pays homage to the late co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, but also demonstrates vividly how much some of us like to keep our old Apple equipment and books. Blake Patterson (@blakespot) took this photo on October 7, 2011 -- just two days after Jobs passed away.
This Apple //c is displaying a ghostly green monochrome image of Jobs, rendered in Applesoft BASIC line by glowing line with a program by Chris Baird from the A2Central.com IRC chat. A look at the A2Central website indicates that there's still a thriving community of Apple II fans, so if you still have working hardware, there are a lot of people who are willing to help you keep it running.
