Simple is best

iD Tech in action

Sometimes, the simplest messages are the best.  This email was just forwarded to me.  It really sums it up:

Subject: re: old friend from Internal Drive
To: Kevin Painchaud (lead digital video instructor)

Dear Kevin,

I got your e-mail from Chad. I hope you remember me. You were a mentor/instructor when I was in high school and you taught at Internal Drive. How are you? I hope that you have been well. I know it's been a while since we last spoke, but I'm e-mailing you because I would like to invite you and a guest to a graduation dinner party that I am holding. I'm graduating from USC Film School this May, and I decided to hold a party to celebrate and thank all of the people that had a positive influence in my life. You no doubt had an influence on my life during high school, and I would be honored for you to attend. Chad and Joy are coming, and I would love for you to come too.

The party will be held on Saturday May 12th...

Kevin was working back with us in '99, and is still working for us today.  He has been a mentor to hundreds, if not thousands of students.
