NYT Crossword Puzzle Honors Steve Jobs

Attention techies: your crossword puzzle has arrived.

Steve Jobs' New York Times Crossword Puzzle

The New York Times' famous crossword puzzle honors Steve Jobs today. Not only that, but the whole thing was put together by Bay Area engineer (and puzzle creator) Kevin Der. Der works at Palo Alto-based Quora, known for answering questions.

Der, as it turns out, holds the record for fewest black squares in a NYT puzzle. He has held jobs at Facebook and Pixar, and says he wanted to get the puzzle done as quickly as possible to honor Jobs.

For a man who loved big statements, not to mention leaving clues, this seems like a perfect tribute.

(You'll have to be a NYT subscriber to get into the puzzle online.)
