"Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning."

- Benjamin Franklin

In 1727, Benjamin Franklin founded The Junto (aka the Leather Apron Club) - a group of merchants, makers and thinkers that met each Friday to debate questions of morality, philosophy, and politics.  While similar in their dynamic interests and vision, its members' differences - in profession, life story, and outlook - are what made things interesting.  Franklin, as always ahead of his time, recognized that it's the outsiders, the unusual suspects, and the people you'd least expect who often have the most profound insights into problems - and solutions.

In the spirit of the city I love and a humble nod to one of its most famous citizens, we'll be featuring the stories of makers and doers that are, each in their own way, changing the world. Welcome to The Junto, v2.0.
