Ben Franklin
(January 17, 1706 – April 17, 1790)

“Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn.”
– B. Franklin

One of the fondest memories from my time as an undergraduate at RIT was being singled out and favorably compared to Ben Franklin during a School of Printing Event. I don’t think I was deserving of the honor, but it meant a lot. Franklin and I will be getting to know each other better in the months to come. In the meantime, happy 300th birthday, oh Patron Saint of Printing. Were you alive today, you’d be blogging, and far more eloquently than most out there. Certainly more so than I.
