I was thinking of emailing the progenitors of Talk Like a Pirate Day to move the holiday from September 19th to October 4th in honor of Steve Jobs.

Good idea?

Before I could support this, I'd need to see SJ talking like a pirate. He introduced iTunes DRM, and the "Rip. Mix. Burn" slogan vanished mysteriously afterwards. So, evidence needed to validate his credentials. Got a YouTube link?

He did raise a Pirate flag when developing the Macintosh. And was a rebel.
