Biz Journal reports that the day was set up by a group of workers at the Atlanta digital advertising studio Studiocom Inc. The initial intention is was so that people could thank Jobs for everything he’s accomplished.  After his passing, the day turned into a day of honor.

The organizers of Steve Jobs Day are encouraging people to dress like Steve Jobs will talking about him with friends, and on Facebook and Twitter. Topics of discussion will include favorite Apple products and why you love Jobs’ work.
