Jobs in CA Hall of Fame

As announced in late August, Apple CEO Steve Jobs last night received his medal for entry into the California Hall of Fame, an institution meant to promote the state's history and culture. The award was presented personally by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, and as Jobs came to the stage, The Beatles' "Revolution" played in the background.

Other inductees into the Hall of Fame included living figures Willie Mays, Tiger Woods and Elizabeth Taylor, and posthumous figures such as Ansel Adams, John Wayne and Jonas Salk. First Lady Shriver noted that Jobs was extremely reluctant to attend the ceremony, for personal reasons. "He's trying to balance children, family, business," Shriver told NBC, and "he doesn't like to be singled out. He believes that Apple is the star of the Silicon Valley, not him."

Full video of the ceremony can be found here.

    I wonder

    what kind of stats you need to get into this CA HoF... That's a widely varying list of people there. Maybe it's something like a knighthood from the queen these days, but with less prestige and more obscruity...
