Lon Saves Betsy Ross To Our History Books

As with all stories of rescue, no one individual can be responsible for the entire adventure. My adventure starts at the age of 4, back in the city of Yonkers, New York and spans two centuries. While taking a short cut along the Hudson River on my way back to my hotel returning from a meeting in New York, I past an old building lurking on my right.

Lon Donates His Mac Plus To The Walter Cronkite School Of Journalism
Nearly 30 years ago, Lon developed the concept and first interactive electronic user’s guides. They were developed first for the physically disabled who could not hold a paper guide, then for the main stream public. The guides were developed using Apple’s first version of HyperCard, long before the “PDF” was invented. The computer that Lon used to create those very first guides is now on display at The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication museum in Phoenix, AZ. The concept of distributing an intangible electronic user’s guide prompted a three year battle between Lon’s company, a computer research and development company and Apple Computer. Apple refused to “approve” and endorse Lon’s 125 Apple software titles for the disabled until he created and submitted the typical printed paper guides. Lon hired a PR company to create three copies of the printed guide; two for the Apple submission and one for his dead files.

If you are careful to look beyond the forest and beyond the tree, you might just see a fieldstone wall, or better yet, parallel fieldstone walls. This usually meant an abandoned road. If you look closely at the average age of the trees, you can often identify a strip of younger trees of less than 100 years old, winding it’s way through a forest of older stand trees of oak, maple, and ash…Lon’s book, “Gratuitous Serendipity” is available on Amazon where you can read all of Lon’s amazing stories or you can read the story here!|
