Cool Video Celebrating Illustrator

I have used Illustrator since the early 90s, after Freehand went away. I had trouble at first with the different tools and key commands, but eventually became comfortable and now use it in almost every major design project I have. Additionally, Illustrator has acted like something of a can opener for me in its ability to pull apart PDF files, since often a challenge with a design project is to obtain already-created assets, such as logos, that the client may not have, and may not be able to get.
Today, someone sent me a video commemorating the anniversary of Illustrator. Kind of cool to see images and people I have encountered over the years. Ron Chan created one the cover of one of the first Macworld issues I contributed to — the rather iconic vector graphic of a man pulling a broadsheet off a printing press. I saw him rebuild that image at a Macworld conference a few months later.
