Pixar dedicates main campus building to late CEO Steve Jobs

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Pixar, maker of films such as Finding Nemo and the new movie Brave, named the main building on its campus after late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs, who helped finance and guide the studio before it became a household name.

According to Pixar blog The Pixar Times, "The Steve Jobs Building" is one of the main centers of activity on the studio's campus, and like many Apple projects, Jobs had a hand in its design.

Main entrance to the Steve Jobs Building at Pixar's campus in California.


"He came up with the idea that the building should be centered around a large atrium, which would lead to accidental collaboration that may not occur if everyone was stuck in their individual offices," wrote Samad Rizvi.

Jobs was one of the main backers of Pixar, infusing millions of dollars of personal cash to keep the studio alive, well before the now-famous company turned a profit and was subsequently purchased by Disney. When he was CEO of Pixar in 2004, Jobs was paid $1 a week, however he netted approximately $4 billion in shares of Disney Co. when animation giant purchased the studio in 2006.

"I find this to be the perfect way to honor the legacy of Steve Jobs. Placing his name above the main building not only reminds those who walk through the entrance of his importance to the formation of the studio," Rizvi wrote, "but is also a meaningful representation of his influence on the famed building."

And?

 

1. Obviously.

2. Nor could it be.

3. Nor should it be.

4. This is Pixar.

 

What's with all these frigging anti-Apple signups today?

I think it was more the other way around. Pixar tempered him.

It's a new push to turn this into the engizmoverge forums.

Jobs once said he connected with Remy in Ratatouille.

I think they were more expressing their emotions for Steve, rather than a hatred for Apple.

I miss that cheeky bastard too.

Easy... their mommies and daddies left the house to vote for the sake of our country.  That left these trolls and iHaters with an opportunity to leave the basement if only for a moment to be useless yet again and spew nonsense.

I think it was a combination of both especially if you see what the people at Pixar has said about Jobs over the years

``Jobs was one of the main backers of Pixar, infusing millions of dollars of personal cash to keep the studio alive, well before the now-famous company turned a profit and was subsequently purchased by Disney. ''

Jobs was the over 80% majority owner of PIXAR.

Every competent, respected tech analyst, CEO, manager, developer, competitor, you-name-it openly acknowledges that Steve Jobs dragged them kicking and screaming into the future, that he disrupted and then transformed at least three industries into what they are today. He left Apple in good hands, hands he prepared to carry on his vision. Steve Jobs' place in history is secure. The triumphs and failures of Apple will be taught in business school textbooks from now on.

 

It's only the losers in their parents basements and hack pundits that refuse to accept the truth. So they signup here and defecate.

Good idea!

Pixar beat Apple to the punch. I guess Apple will have to name their new headquarters "The Big Doughnut" instead.

If the building sign didn't include the word "The" it would be a clever tribute to just have "Steve Jobs Building".

Ooh, I like that.

 

Maybe Apple Campus 2 will pick up on that.
