I’ve owned an Apple computer for every day of my life since the release of the Apple ][+. I could spend an hour waxing poetic about how amazing the hardware and the software have been in my opinion. How I’ve felt the technology, not just used it.
Today I merely want to congratulate Apple Inc. on this great milestone. And to say thank you for all of the great work I’ve been able to do using your tools. I’d like to thank you for the inspiration that you’ve provided. You’ve made countless people happy, and none more than I. Happy 30th Anniversary to the Macintosh. A fluttering jolly roger, raise a grog to Steve.
Here’s To The Crazy Ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world – are the ones who do!
