The Agenda #63 — the new book from Basecamp, fresh Apple wallpapers and more Mr. Rogers

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: man, this guy sure loves Mister Rogers… he talks about him all the time.
Yeah, well…
you’re not wrong.
Maybe it was the natural limitation in programming we received over our rabbit ears back in the late 80s/early 90s, but as I reflect back on those years, I sure did spend a good amount of time watching PBS.
And I can’t explain it, but even at age 34, I still find myself drawn in as my kids themselves visit the Land of Make Believe for the first time. (And no, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood may be great, but it’s not the real thing.)
The official trailer for the upcoming documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? dropped this week (find the link below), and I dare you to try and watch it without tearing up just a little.
Fred Rogers would have been 90 this year, and I think it’s right for us to celebrate his faith and lasting impact on the world. See you next week.
