Glitch Players Gather to Mourn Steve Jobs

If you play Glitch, head over to Lowland Slough in Shimla Mirch to see the beautiful spontaneous tribute to Steve Jobs. People are leaving notes (“When I opened my own business, it was on a Mac”) and apples–dozens upon dozens of apples–in the street. The paper tree there has been rechristened “Steve.” Fireflies swirl in jars at the avatars’ feet.

Every now and then a griefer comes along and swipes the apples, but the crowd of Glitches keeps donating more. It’s lovely. I’m playing the game on a Mac, of course.

Requiescat in pace, Mr. Jobs.

P.S. Here’s a shot of another street tribute, this one in Ghora Chani. Breathtaking!
