 Yesterday, October 16th, was National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day. Every third Monday of October is dedicated to reorganizing and consolidating the files on your desktop. Created by the Personal Computer Museum in Ontario, Canada, this is a day to recall how nice and simple your desktop was when you first got your computer and straighten things up. Happy deleting  


Did You Know

90 years ago, today, in 1923, the Disney brothers founded the Disney Cartoon Studio, of which Steve Jobs was later a shareholder and board member. The animation gurus at Disney Cartoon Studios are notably famous not only for starting the iconic Disney brand but also for being the first to combine voiceover narration with animated cartoons and were also the first to make feature-length animated films with sound.


Have a great week and keep networking!
