Jobs in Cali Hall of Fame

The California Museum, a Sacramento institution devoted to the history of the state and its culture, has announced that Apple CEO Steve Jobs will be inducted into its Hall of Fame later this year. The ceremony is scheduled for December 5th, and will involve a medal presentation by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and First Lady Maria Shriver, to be followed by the unveiling of a new exhibit. Jobs will be joined in name by a number of famous Californians, living and dead: co-inductees this year include Ansel Adams, John Wayne, Jonas Salk, Tiger Woods and more.

The sheer number of inductees for the year is attributable to the age of the Hall of Fame program, which only began in 2006. Inductees that year included the likes of César Chávez, Clint Eastwood, John Muir and Walt Disney. The award recognizes those who "embody California's innovative spirit," and is selected from a committee comprised of the Governor and First Lady's offices, the California Museum, and the California Arts Council. Jobs is commended for popularizing the personal computer with the Apple II, digital music with the iPod, and 3D animated films through his involvement with Pixar.

    wasn't John Wayne a racist?

    Does that qualify you to be a great Californian, or was it his ability to keep on producing the same roles in the same films for about 50 years

    (..but then this has nothing to do with macs - think different!)
