The only reason the Mac looks like it does is because Steve Jobs dropped in on a course taught by this former monk
One of those classes was calligraphy, and it was taught by a Trappist monk named Robert Palladino.Palladino died last month, and his obituary in the New York Times explains that he was a huge influence on Jobs and Apple.
If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.Jobs may never have met Palladino in the first place if he hadn't abandoned the Trappist monastery where he was a monk in 1968. But he'd fallen in love with a clarinetist in the Portland Symphony, Catherine Halverson, and married her after being dispensed from his priestly vows. He rejoined the priesthood in 1995, after his wife's death.
