Granted -- I don't know what event was hosting this discussion or the title of the discussion so please forgive me if this is an inappropriate comment.

I do like the focus on "women in print". I would like to challenge associations and - anyone hosting any panel discussion - to focus on building panels with gender and ethnic diversity whenever possible. No matter the topic.

To make the transition, and get more people to accept that real diversity is a good thing for their organizations, people need to see panels of a diverse make up. Let's face it -- someone who doesn't think it is a problem will never go to a panel discussing "women in print". But they need to have their hidden biases challenged.

There are lots of women in a variety of areas that can support about anything I've ever seen discussed at a print show. Yes it makes planning a little more challenging, but it is important for the future of our industry.

I just spoke to a young woman with years of experience who was ready to leave the industry because she was exhausted with fighting the discriminatory and chauvinistic nature of many owners. So glad I was able to meet her and show her that there is excitement and acceptance in the printing industry.

Frank, I miss your old graphics, with the breaking up wall! And the music that went with it. Being an old school printer, I'd love to see more nostalgic items containing letterpress! Maybe an interview with one or two of the Ladies of Letterpress some time?

Frank recommends a recently reissued edition of Tom Standage’s classic 1997 book “The Victorian Internet,” all about the telegraph, which had the effect of changing the world in very much the same way as the Internet. Fun fact: How did Samuel Morse develop the Morse Code? He went to a printing company and counted the number of letters in a typecase to determine the least number of dots and dashes needed for a letter.
