so say we
I don’t know why it took me so long to recognize the visual similarities between the logo of Apple’s App Store, and that of Freemasonry, aka the Free and Accepted Masons.

Hopefully, this won’t compel me to ponder joining the Brotherhood.

So, is this a sign that Steve Jobs is a closet Mason? Further, since I’ve made a couple of purchases from the App Store, am I now initiated by default? I’d hate to think that my iPod Touch got me shanghaied into a secret society…

UPDATE: I was only kidding about Jobs, but Steve Wozniak, Apple’s “other Steve” co-founder, allegedly is on record as being a third-degree Freemason. Did The Woz have a hand in designing the App Store? The plot thickens (or thins, maybe)…

  1. Thanks for linking to my post. I ended up joining the Masons, and have added a note saying so.

  2. Yeah, I noticed that announcement; I would have mentioned it but wanted to stay in-context. If you start making more App Store purchases, I guess we’ll know why! :)
