50 Years of an Institution – LEGO still rocks

I hear from Michael that LEGO is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

I’m quite certain that LEGO and my natural desire to build, destroy, rebuild, morph, combine and synthesize formed a virtuous circle in my childhood that had a significant impact in setting me off down the path my interests and career have taken.

Hats off to a marvelous Dane – if LEGO isn’t cool, I don’t know what is.

    Oh yeah, oh so true…

    Without much introspection really, I do have the feeling that the mere LEGO’s existence played a major role in arousing my curiosity, and improving my intellect to build things. Not to mention the pleasant side effect of having fun doing so.

    Building things that work *first* in the realm of ideas, and *then* in our real world, even with those "dumb" binary machines, is so… well, rewarding. Yep. 🙂
