Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

I grew up reading Dr. Seuss. I especially liked the elaborate machines like the ones in The Sneetches. Years later, when I was learning about computers and programming, I would visualize computers working like some sort of Seussian contraption. The longer I've been in the software business, the more appropriate the analogy seems. The Star-On and Star-Off machines started out as small boxes and expanded via an outgrowth of components that never quite fit together correctly. Sylvester McMonkey McAfee McBean also pioneers the business model of fixing problems with software by selling more software.

The animated version of the Sneetches is difficult to find on DVD, but it's available on Youtube:
