Daily Thoughts 9/17/2011

This morning, I udpated the Twitter and Facebook accounts.  I also spent a little more time on watching training videos.

While reading The Steve Jobs Way, I learned that the slogan "Pirates!Not the Navy" is an Apple computer slogan about the way they run their business.  It means that people need to be very good to survive at what they do and have strong leaders.  I had heard the slogan before was not sure where it came from.  I also learned that the underlying philosophy is focused on combining design with technology.  The product design is as important as the technology.
