While the event was closed to the both the public and the media, those attending the memorial have been sharing their thoughts, as well as details of the event via Twitter and other channels. The above banner posted at Apple’s campus today, was shared by Twitter user @RyanShah.

The memorial event featured performances by Coldplay and Norah Jones, a speech offered by Tim Cook, and more. MacRumors has collected a series of tweets put out by those in attendance at the event:

Wonderful speech by Tim. Wonderful speech by Bill Campbell. Wonderful performance by Norah Jones. This really helps bring closure.

An incredible and fitting celebration. Tears, laughter and some closure. #stevejobs

Just had a concert before work. Norah Jones and Coldplay rocked the memorial for Steve Jobs.

That was a really moving ceremony. Norah Jones, Coldplay, Al Gore… Got choked up when they played Steve reading “Here’s to the Crazy Ones”

Wow. That was amazing. Simple, beautiful. Just as Steve would have wanted.

CNet managed to capture an arial video of the crowds at Apple HQ today, in which you can see several large banners with photos of Steve Jobs suspended from the buildings. Their clip is embedded below:
