There is only one way that any one of you, any one of your companies, or any piece of your work can be considered a "brand." And that's if people recognize it's you... and how you differ from others. So whether it's a multi-million dollar logo or a barely legible cursive scrawl, the power is in your hands.

The Week In Review: The Mac Turns 30

This week, the Macintosh computer turned 30. As someone who plugged away on a boxy little Mac SE from high school all the way through university, I can't help but feel a great deal of personal tenderness for the Mac. But as Stephen Fry reminds us in the Daily Telegraph, the original Mac was much more than just a cute new product (that now serves as a cue for nostalgia). It was a revolution that included folders and windows "which could be operated and manipulated, not by keyboard commands but by this mystical magical mouse." It's easy to forget what a departure that was. And how many naysayers were sure it would never last.
