The Central Lakes College IT Club (Information Technology) will host a free, 2-hour Tribute to Steve Jobs on Tuesday, Oct. 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Lecture Hall (E354) of the Brainerd campus. After a brief overview of the life of the American computer entrepreneur, the club will show on the big screen a short example of the animation films he helped produce as well as the 90-minute, “Pirates of Silicon Valley.” It is a 1999 made-for-TV docudrama on the rise of the home computer and the rivalry between Apple Computer and Microsoft. The film stars Anthony Michael Hall as Bill Gates and Noah Wyle as Steve Jobs. Cris Weber, club president, said a hallway display at the lecture hall will exhibit of various early computer technology up to present-day tools. Jobs was co-founder of Apple Inc. and served as chief executive of Pixar Animation Studios. He died Oct. 5 at the age of 57.
