St. Patrick's Day Story: From A Religious Event To A Global Party

St. Patrick's Day Story: From A Religious Event To A Global Party | Just Story It! Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it
St. Patrick's Day began in Ireland as a serious religious event, but Irish immigrants in the U.S. helped transform it into a celebration of Irish culture that is now marked everywhere from Tokyo to Toronto.
Karen Dietz's insight:

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! I'm wearing my green and sipping coffee from my favorite green mug this morning. In searching for something fun to share with you today, I found this article about how St. Patricks Day has turned into a global party.


Hey -- I love a great party but how did this one turn out to be so big? The answers await you here in this backstory.


Enjoy the post along with my favorite Irish Blessing:

May you be blessed with warmth in your home,
love in your heart,
peace in your soul
and joy in your life

Who Really Created Modern Tech? The Forgotten Female Programmers Story | Just Story It! Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it
The Innovators, Walter Isaacson's new book, tells the stories of the people who created modern computers. Women, who are now a minority in computer science, played an outsize role in that history.

Now here's a story you rarely hear -- all about the women mathematicians who created our modern computers.


This is a wonderful read, and a perfect way to end the week. As usual, women's contributions are off the radar screen. Yet it is inspiring to read how much they contributed to the creation of computers. These women were front-and-center, not help maidens. Who knew??!!


Read this fascinating story. And oh, BTW -- there are tons of these backstories laying around just waiting to be told. What fascinating backstories can you tell about your business and the people involved?


Happy Friday! Happy reading!
