The friends and family of Apple founder Steve Jobs have launched the Steve Jobs Archive, an organization celebrating the tech titan. You can visit the archive at: stevejobsarchive.com.

At the moment the site is simple. At the top is a poetic email Jobs sent to himself about his admiration for humanity. If you scroll down, you’ll see some notable quotes from Jobs, including some from his famous 2005 Stanford opening speech. At the end there is a short “About Us” description for the archive. Along the way, video and audio clips of Jobs are taped.

“With respect for the past and enthusiasm for the future, the Steve Jobs archive provides people with the tools and opportunities to make their own contribution,” the site reads. “We build programs, fellowships, collections and partnerships that reflect Steve’s values ​​and advance his sense of possibility.” A press release also says the archive “will act as a repository of historical material related to Steve, some of which has never been made public before.” More announcements about additional offerings and projects will be made in the coming months.

The archive was introduced Wednesday by Laurene Powell Jobs, Jobs’s widow, at Vox Media’s Code conference. “While we have some artifacts and really real material, the archive is much more about ideas,” she said.

According to Powell Jobs, the archive is “rooted in Steve’s long-held idea that once you understand that, beyond the natural world, everything in the built environment and all the systems that control our life on the planet were built and designed by other people. If once you have that understanding, you understand that as a human being you can change it, poke it, maybe question it and stretch it, that’s how human progress happens.”
