FORTUNE -- As we did when he was still running Apple (AAPL), we'd like to celebrate Steve Jobs' life by re-posting what may be the most personal public speech this intensely private man ever made: His commencement address to the Stanford University class of 2005.
If you haven't seen it — or haven't heard it recently — we give you Steve Jobs on life, death and calligraphy.
"Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories…"
Below the fold, 15 minutes, via YouTube. (Here's the link.)
Also on the 'top secret' list: Johnny Carson, Latino Baseball, Social Awareness, Peanuts.
FORTUNE -- There used to be a rule that you had to be dead for at least 10 years before your face could appear on a U.S. postage stamp. That got lifted in 2011, in time for the Postal Service's Citizen Stamp Advisory Committee to approved a 2015 series collectible commemorating Apple's (AAPL) Steve Jobs (1955-2011).
According to the Washington MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 21, 2014 8:34 AM ET
A traffic reporter has posted the first image of demolition at the site of Apple's new HQ.
FORTUNE -- Ron Cervi, a news and traffic reporter for KCBS, was flying over Cupertino Monday when he snapped this aerial photo. Posted on Instagram, it's a "before" picture to go with the "after" rendering (below) that Apple (AAPL) commissioned.
In Steve Jobs' final public appearance -- his 2011 presentation to a starstruck Cupertino city MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 20, 2014 7:02 AM ET
Words to remember in advance of the Feb. 28 vote on Carl Icahn's shareholder proposal.
FORTUNE -- It's not exactly on point, but reading Ben Popper's piece on Carl Icahn in the Verge this weekend brought to mind a Steve Jobs Q&A from May 1997 -- a few months after his return to Apple (AAPL) -- when someone asked: "Steve, what do we do about the press?"
Jobs spoke for nearly two minutes before he MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 9, 2014 3:55 PM ET
She is not optimistic about Apple's future, as her piece in the New Yorker makes clear.
FORTUNE -- During her five and a half years at the Wall Street Journal Yukari Iwatani Kane published so many Apple (AAPL) scoops -- like the 2009 story about Steve Jobs secret liver transplant -- that NPR's On the Media suggested she might be a conduit for friendly leaks from inside the company.
Friendly is the last word MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 5, 2014 8:07 AM ET
The U.S. economy was built, writes James Surowiecki, on hope and hype.
FORTUNE -- Americans have a soft spot for con artists -- those greedy hucksters whose dreams never come true. So writes The New Yorker's James Surowiecki in an essay that starts with two Oscar-nominated movies -- American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street -- and ends with Steve Jobs.
There's a thin line, he argues, between con men and entrepreneurs. MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 18, 2014 6:27 AM ET
Tim Wu told the New York Times in 2010 that Apple was a threat to the Internet.
FORTUNE -- With "net neutrality" back in the headlines after Tuesday's federal appeals court ruling, I thought I'd check in with Tim Wu, the Columbia law professor who coined the phrase.
When asked by the New York Times' Nick Binton what forces threatened the Internet in 2010, Wu famously singled out Apple (AAPL):
"I know the Internet MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 15, 2014 10:56 AM ET
Plus, two CEOs who have been dubbed the Steve Jobs of China.
FORTUNE -- I'm glad it was Tiernan Ray and not me who submitted to briefings by three Chinese smartphone makers -- Huawei, ZTE and Meizu -- at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week. Maybe I've covered too many over-crowded trade shows. Or fielded too many over-caffinated sales pitches in broken English. Or maybe I'm just getting old.
In any event, I learned MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 12, 2014 9:02 AM ET
Or at least the fact-checking part. It's an editorial experiment that could still go off the rails.
FORTUNE -- Walter Isaacson's biography of Apple's (AAPL) Steve Jobs was enjoying its sixth week at No. 1 on the New York Times' hardcover nonfiction bestseller list in December 2011 when Fortune's Adam Lashinsky asked him what he was going to do next.
The author of biographies of Henry Kissinger, Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein told the audience MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 30, 2013 9:33 AM ET
This Time Magazine interview was taped on Oct. 11, 2011, six days after Jobs died.
FORTUNE -- "What does Steve Jobs tell us about leadership in the 21st century?"
That's all Time Magazine's Rick Stengel had to ask Bill Clinton at a conference in Chicago on Oct. 11, 2011 -- six days after Jobs' death -- to get the 42nd U.S. President started.
Clinton doesn't really answer the question, except to say that MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 18, 2013 6:59 AM ET
