Just when you thought it was finally safe to use your Macbook Air without slipping on a black turtleneck to show your bereavement, we’ve received word on Google+ from premiere Mac User Elbert Cuenca that Philippine Apple fans will be celebrating Steve Jobs Day at 5:30pm on October 14 at the Rockwell Tent by the Power Plant Mall in Rockwell, Makati.
The event will be organized by PhilMUG, the venerable Philippine Mac Users Group.
I asked +Elbert Cuenca what’s on the program:
For now, a simple organized free-for-all. We’ll sort out the details tomorrow. What we had in mind was a series of eulogies, and tributes in any form, be it in written or spoken word, dance, song, visual arts, etc. Essentially, this is nothing more than a celebration of the life of Steve Jobs.
It turns out that this is a global event. There is an official Twitter account (@SteveJobsDay) you can follow, a Twitter hashtag (#SteveJobsDay), a Facebook event page, and a tribute website at stevejobsday2011.com that describes the event in detail.
The website suggests that one way to pay homage to the man on this day is to dress like Steve:
