Steve Jobs Inducted into Bay Area Business Hall of Fame, Eddy Cue Gives Emotional Speech
Apple SVP of internet software and services Eddy Cue accepted Steve Jobs' posthumous induction into the Bay Area Business Hall of Fame last Thursday, which recognizes esteemed business individuals with ties to the San Francisco Bay Area. In a video of the award ceremony uploaded by the Bay Area Council (via TechCrunch), a montage of Jobs' noteworthy innovations is followed by an emotional speech from Cue detailing how Jobs had become a friend and helped him as his wife battled cancer, going on to share several remarks about Jobs' relentless pursuit of perfection throughout his time at Apple.
In the speech, Cue recounts how he learned through Jobs to "do what you love" for the first time when Apple was preparing to launch the original iMac in 1998. Cue recounts how Apple's representatives got into the venue at midnight on the date of the event for rehearsals, with Jobs furious at the angle in which the Bondi Blue iMac popped up from the bottom center of the stage during a practice run:
Also honored during the event was Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, who was a close friend of Jobs. Ellison stated that Jobs was not seeking fortune or fame, but rather added that the former Apple CEO was "obsessed with the creative process and building something that was beautiful."

the more you know...
I didn't even know there was such a thing as the "Bay Area Business Hall of Fame".
That said, I think it's a great idea to have Steve Jobs inducted into it, considering how much he did to spur innovation and business in the region, and being a homegrown local boy makes it an even sweeter and appropriate nod.

Steve was something else. His death is a huge loss to the Apple community. Good to see him recognized. His quest for excellence is what made Apple great.
Steve will always be remembered and missed.
Here's to the Crazy One.
