What's Ben Franklin doing in the 21st Century?
Everybody loves to quote Ben Franklin – but that’s a little like living in the past. What we need in this new world is “Ben updated” – or, to put it another way, Ben Franklin for today...especially now, in light of the constantly changing political situation in Washington, DC.
So that’s what we’re all about. Bringing Ben into the 21st century. So, meet “time traveler Ben.”
As you browse through this Ben site, you’ll probably recognize a number of his famous sayings – re-interpreted, however, with modern audiences in mind. The goal is to offer his wisdom and insights, but not in ways that would be seen as a turn-off or thought of as overly preachy or old-fashioned. Nor are we just trying to be another conduit of Benjamin Franklin facts – you can get those elsewhere, in plenty of other places on the web. We’re all about Ben Franklin now.
Ben’s fans have acclaimed him as the forerunner of what it means to be “American,” the earliest example of an “urban Yuppie,” entrepreneur, self-improvement guru, astute (and humorous) commentator on the state of society, and a prophet of progress and technological advancement.
So get ready for the priceless gems of Benjamin Franklin’s patriotism, practical wisdom, and down-to-earth humanity, brought up to speed for the new digital and visual media. Welcome to “Ben Franklin Exclusive”!
