Of Napkins and Penguins: The Origin of Penguin Encounter, Part One

If you’re like me, you may enjoy an “origin story” from time to time: the notion that an institution, invention or innovation sometimes stems from the simple act of someone scribbling an idea on whatever scrap of paper is available.
