Saluting the father of xerography

The helpful public relations professionals at Xerox bring us this news: “One hundred years ago today Chester Carlson, the inventor of xerography, was born – a man whose genius would forever change how people share information and would ultimately generate a document management industry worth more than $112 billion.”

In other words, no Chester Carlson, no paper jams.

So how best to commemorate this great man’s birthdate?

Something tells me there’s going to be a lot of butt-cheek prints on office copiers today.
