History of Tabs

A short read about the History of tabs.

Merlin Mann gets major points for using the term, "office supply fetishist" of which I certainly am (who knew there was a term?) and a zillion points for mentioning James Burke, creator of the documentary series Connections and The Day the Universe Changed, both of which played a huge role in forming the person that I am.

If you haven't watched either of James Burke's series, definitely try to see them.

You've intrigued me. I just added Connections (Series 1) to the top of my Netflix queue.

Let me know what you think!

First off, I too am an office supply fetishist. But not for organizational purposes (I suck at that part). More like pens and staplers and pads and scissors. I think that goes along with the writing in a real journal thing, too - the tactile experience.

I too am intrigued by the series. I'm going to have to add that to my Netflix as well!
(BTW, my word verification to post this is "vakedrn" - just one letter away from "naked rn" - interesting; what is the universe trying to say?)

Just saw 4 episodes of 'Connections' and I love it! The visuals, the script, the storytelling, all awesome! Can't wait for the next batch of DVDs to come in.

Yay! I'm so glad it's meeting the high expectations I set!
