Once upon a time, only the wealthiest could afford to publish their thoughts—or the thoughts they wanted to support. In 1985 the Desktop Publishing Revolution was unleashed and suddenly the unwashed masses could design and print just about anything they wanted, using a Mac and a Laserwriter. It was like Freedom itself.

Most of it wasn't pretty, but it served a purpose.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a thousand words have actually formed new nations and torn down dictators. What could your words say, if you were to get the words out there?
