I’m now running the School of Thinking from my iPad.
We will be designing a series ofÂ SOT applications especially for iPad utility. They will be young, fast and scientific.
I got my first Mac in January 1984. My friend, Peter Bensinger, and I literally ran to the store to get one each on the day they came on sale. I’ve continually used many Macs since then and have designed the online SOT on these Macs since 1995. Most SOT lessons were written and sent to SOT members from my Macs. There’s no doubt in my mind that without these unique, marvelous and elegantly designed tools that SOT would not be what it is today.

As most of you already know, at the close of today’s stock market, Apple’s market cap (stock price x number of shares) surpassed Microsoft’s market cap.
As I once said in a company email sent a long time ago: “Stocks go up and down, and things may be different tomorrow, but I thought it was worth a moment of reflection today.”
And so it is again.
Walt Disney used to say to his team: “We’re only as good as our next picture.” Well, we’re only as good as our next amazing new product.Â Back to work…
