Ever since Steve Jobs died a little more than a month ago, it seems all we want is to know more about the tech guru who revolutionized our lives. As SF Weekly's Taylor Friedman pointed out today, Jobs' cryptic final words left us all that much more intrigued by the insanely complex man; he's like a piece of technology we can't figure out.

Who better to give us some answers -- or at least some insight into the enigmatic innovator -- than his own biographer, Walter Isaacson, who released a compelling book on Jobs a few weeks after he died.  Luckily, the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco is hosting a conversation with Isaacson next month.

Even if you have already read the book, Steve Jobs, we're guessing Isaacson will provide more intricate details to awe the masses. So if you've not gotten your Jobs fix, then skip out on work and go!

"Walter Isaacson on Steve Jobs" starts at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, 3200 California (at Presidio). Isaacson speaks with Kevin Kelley of Wired magazine. Admission is $10-$25.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
