Bringing the Eternal Beachball to life
I was reading xkcd today, and I realised that this would be a viable memorial. It'd be expensive, due to the energy needed to keep the beachball spinning, but it could be a poignant, almost beautiful commemoration without being overbearingly schmaltzy. It could be a tangible, permanent tribute from the Apple community. If anyone agrees, I'm more than willing to look into the mechanics of it, etc.
Of course, some might consider it too light-hearted or a little flippant. I'm quite a poor judge of what's too light-hearted for remembrance - I think that this hits the perfect balance of tastefulness without heavy-handedness, but what are your opinions?

Honestly, in keeping with Jobs design ethic and personal preference for privacy, less is more when it comes to a memorial for him.
I am. Two of the most powerful words, for what you put after them shapes reality.

Yeah the beachball has a negative connotation. I say instead of that, a pulsating symbol (like when your computer goes to sleep) is the way to go. A nice soft pulsating white LED. The technical equivalent of the eternal flame.
