Wired\'s \'Steve Jobs Award\'

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has been recognized by Wired Magazine yet again. The publication announced the seventh annual Wired Rave Awards, which recognize leading innovators in 16 categories, including a completely a new award named after Steve Jobs himself. "Finally, faced with the prospect of handing out yet another well-deserved Rave Award to Steve Jobs, Wired's editors took the unprecedented step of creating a separate award in his honor. The inaugural Steve Jobs Award, recognizing sustained excellence and creative genius, goes to ... Steve Jobs." The top award, for Wired Renegade, went to dot-com billionaires Mark Cuban and Jeff Skoll, Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh, and actor George Clooney.

"This year's Rave Award winners have challenged conventional wisdom, defied critics and created something genuinely new to transform our
culture," said Chris Anderson, Editor in Chief of Wired Magazine. "They
inspire new ideas and most of all, they inspire us."

In 2004, Wired recgonized Steve Jobs with the Wired "Renegade of the Year" Rave Award, citing his accomplishments with both Apple (in particular iTunes) and Pixar. Last year, the Jobs and Apple were been selected as nominees for Wired Magazine's sixth annual Wired Rave Awards, selecting Jobs in the Business Leader category.
