A sister’s moving tribute to Steve Jobs

Not many people know this, but Steve Job’s biological sister is the celebrated feminist novelist Mona Simpson. Famous in her own right, she delivered a eulogy at the memorial service held for Steve Jobs at Memorial Church of Stanford University on October 16th. At a time when a lot is being said about the legacy of his work, the importance of his life to the field of IT and the company he built, Mona’s words speak of a father, a family man, a person passionate about art and love. It’s an incrediably touching read.
