It is worth mentioning that St. Petersburg is not Russia's only city that intends to pay tribute to Apple's founder. The contest for the best design of the monument to Mr. Jobs also takes place in Novosibirsk. In Novosibirsk, the monument is to be installed in Akademgorodok (Academic Tonwship) near the Center of Information Technologies, reports Novosibirsk-news.ru.
The initiators of the monument to Steve Jobs in Novosibirsk have collected only 55,000 rubles ($1,700) from the required amount of 600,000 rubles ($18,750) in six months, news agency NIA Novosibirsk said. The young people are certain that they will collect the required amount by the end of the year. If their expectations are justified, it will be the world's second monument to Jobs. The first one opened last December in Budapest.
