REMEMBERING STEVE JOBS
Today Steve Jobs would have celebrated his 60th birthday. Whether you’re a Mac or more of a PC, it’s hard to deny the influence of Apple’s forthright and visionary leader. An interesting read at any time, Jobs’ Stanford commencement speech from 2005 is especially poignant today. We especially love the tale of how the elective calligraphy class he took before at Reed College impacted the design of the original Macintosh. (BTW – did you know that original fonts on the Mac were named after Philadelphia Main Line towns? Or is that urban folklore? Hmm…sounds like a job for a librarian!)

QUOTE OF THE DAY
“You have plenty of courage, I am sure,” answered Oz. “All you need is confidence in yourself. There is no living thing that is not afraid when it faces danger. The true courage is in facing danger when you are afraid, and that kind of courage you have in plenty.” – The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
