Memorials of all types have been dedicated to the late Steve Jobs. Regardless of whether you liked him or not, he brought innovation to Apple and to the technology world in general. Now according to TechCrunch, the first statue has been erected in his memory.
The statue has been unveiled not at the Apple Campus, but in Budapest, Hungary. It is made completely of bronze and stands near the entrance of Graphisoft's headquarters. Graphisoft is an architecural software company. If you look at the statue, Jobs seems to be presenting a new product. Some say he is waving as he was known to do when exiting the stage after a presentation.
The statue was commissioned by Graphisoft founder Gabor Bojar. It was sculpted by the Hungarian sculptor known as Erno Toth. For those who are not familiar with Apple history, Apple and Graphisoft go way back. Jobs threw Apple support behind Graphisoft in 1984 when he took a liking to Graphisoft's ArchiCAD software.
Gabor Bojar said the following in regards to this history:
Apple’s support included cash and computers at a time when GRAPHISOFT was a small company with limited resources, working within the economic and political confines of what was, at the time, communist Hungary.
More statues are sure to pop up as time catches on. Regardless of your stance on Steve Jobs , he probably will not be forgotten for a very, very long time.
