Virgin America has added “Stay hungry, stay foolish” to the side of its Airbus A320 with the tail number N845VA. According to MacRumors, Virgin America chose the name as the result of an internal contest. The phrase comes from the commencement address Steve gave at Stanford Universityin 2005:
“On the back cover of [the Whole Earth Catalog’s] final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: ‘Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.’ It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.”
As MacRumors notes, Virgin America is the only airline based in Silicon Valley.
And I thought the day I got to fly in this was cool.
