Are you old enough to remember the Lone Ranger? So, who is this Nisus Man? The Nisus Writer icon shows a picture of Hermes a Greek god who served as the herald and messenger of other gods, identified by the Romans with Mercury and generally pictured with winged hat, carrying a caduceus (a winged staff with two serpents); he was also the god of science, eloquence, and cunning. In the original Nisus startup screen, he held a pen instead of the caduceus and had a floppy disk at his right elbow with pin feed paper flowing out behind him. The current version extends the length of the pen and removes the disk and paper. We use him here as a metaphor for the efforts to communicate your ideas.
