Steve Jobs is a Candidate for Time’s “Person of the Year” Award

Steve Jobs was nominated by NBC Nightly News anchor and panel member Brian Williams. This tradition has been around since 1927. If Steve Jobs is chosen for this award, he will be the first deceased person to win the award. This award is given to  “a person, couple, group, idea, place, or machine that “for better or for worse, …has done the most to influence the events of the year.'”

  1. Do you think he should have gotten this while he was alive? In the years of the Macintosh, iPod, iPhone, iPad?

    Being dead can be good for your brand. Elvis Presley’s estate made double what it made in 2001 this year. He was dead then too.
