Late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was nominated for the Times Person of the Year Award by “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams on Wednesday, reports MacRumors.
“One guy, who changed our world, and I said to Seth Meyers as we walked across Sixth Avenue, “Just look with me on this one block walk at how he changed the world around us. Look at how he changed the world.” Not only did he change the world, but he gave us that spirit again that something was possible that you could look at a piece of plastic or glass and move your finger– that’s outlandish. You could make things bigger or smaller like that. “Oh the places you’ll go” and oh the way you will change forever the music and television industries. So may he rest in peace, Steve Jobs, and the spirit he represents, are my nominee for Person of the Year”, said Brian while nominating Steve for the prestigious award.
If selected Steve Would become the first person in the history to receive this award after his death. The award will be presented in the month of December.
