The Steve Jobs Archive

Alex Heath, in the Verge’s liveblog coverage of Code yesterday, where Tim Cook, Laurene Powell Jobs, and Jony Ive were interviewed by Kara Swisher:

Here is some news: Laurene says that they’ve been working with an archivist to establish the Steve Jobs Archive, a collection of artifacts about him. Says it’s “really rooted in ideas” and human-centered design.

Laurene says a “very brilliant,” unnamed documentarian has been interviewing hundreds of people who knew Steve for what sounds like a documentary that is coming out.

John Voorhees, MacStories:

The simple, chronologically organized website features quotes and other materials from Jobs’ life, including some that have never been published before. There are written materials, like an email message Jobs sent to himself reflecting on his respect for humanity, along with audio and video clips.

On the website, an email from Jobs to himself:

I did not invent the transistor, the microprocessor, object oriented programming, or most of the technology I work with.

I love and admire my species, living and dead, and am totally dependent on them for my life and well being.

It appears Ive’s LoveFrom agency is working with the Jobs family on this archive. The serif typeface used for the logo and some of the body text is “LoveFromSJA”.
