This is an interesting site that features several individuals who have “made a difference.” The theme for the site is based on the Apple Computer ad campaign championed by Steve Jobs when he returned to the company and began its turn around. If you go to site linked below first view the video and then scroll down to read about the people featured who were “the crazy ones.”
“Here’s To The Crazy Ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. 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. About 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 !”
