We stand on the shoulders of creative giants. Give yourself a boost with these twelve articles.
Back before we had Facebook, when people came across an interesting quote or funny story, they sent it to all their friends by email. And they forwarded all the funny stories they received through email on to their other friends. Today I continue an occasional, temporary feature of interesting or funny emails I printed out in 1998 and 1999, that remained in my file cabinet until recently. I do not know the original source of any of these; they were so widely circulated that they may or may not represent violations of copyright law. If you recognize anything I post, please let me know who the author is, and I will attach an acknowledgement.
