I think this could be a great thread. The choice what Steve did at a specific moment I leave up to you. Where was I when Steve Jobs ... ... announced the original Macintosh: I was right around the corner to see the light of day. ... resigned as CEO: I was just 5 min back from a great beach vacation. I was really relaxed and thought this is a great summer. My MacBook was stored at a friend's home and as we arrived I got the sad news. The music we had listened on that day always reminds me of this day. Music is a stark "storage media" for memories. ...died: This was the time when I did my diploma thesis. I got the news by short message when I was at home. "Nonetheless, you have to be productive today" was my girlfriend's message I am eagerly looking forward to your various contributions on this thread.
