**Steve Jobs was one of the Crazy Ones** "Think Different" was an advertising slogan created for Apple Computer in 1997.
It was used in a television commercial and magazine advertisements.

The slogan appeared to have been a play on the venerable IBM "Think" motto coined by Thomas J. Watson,
with IBM having been a direct competitor of Apple in the PC market.

More explicitly, the Apple slogan served to challenge consumers who were wanting to buy IBM-derived Windows-based PCs to consider Apple as a smart alternative.

The one-minute commercial featured black-and-white footage of 17 iconic 20th century personalities. In order of appearance they were: Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Branson, John Lennon (with Yoko Ono), Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison, Muhammad Ali, Ted Turner, Maria Callas, Mahatma Gandhi, Amelia Earhart, Alfred Hitchcock, Martha Graham, Jim Henson (with Kermit the Frog), Frank Lloyd Wright and Pablo Picasso.

Voice over:

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Python is a remarkably powerful dynamic programming language that is used in a wide variety of application domains.
Python is often compared to Tcl, Perl, Ruby, Scheme or Java. Some of its key distinguishing features include:
  • very clear, readable syntax
  • strong introspection capabilities
  • intuitive object orientation
  • natural expression of procedural code
  • full modularity, supporting hierarchical packages
  • exception-based error handling
  • very high level dynamic data types
  • extensive standard libraries and third party modules for virtually every task
  • extensions and modules easily written in C, C++ (or Java for Jython, or .NET languages for IronPython)
  • embeddable within applications as a scripting interface

pypixel is a simple graphics library for Python. It doesn't really provide any functions that other libraries don't provide, and it isn't meant for production code. pypixel's main goal is to be simple and to avoid boilerplate, as it is intended for use with teaching programming or teaching graphics programming. I chose Python as the language because it is well suited for an introductory programming language due to English-like syntax and forced indentation (indentation can be really hard to teach programmers, but Python makes it simple by requiring anything after a colon to be indented).

A music creation program that uses the PC speaker to make retro style music. It runs on Linux and Windows, and is well documented. If you visit the Google Code page, it has a link to the SourceForge page which hosts the HTML documentation for the program.
