Homage to moving atoms.

It was on This Day in History in 1907 that James E. Casey established the company that was to become the United Parcel Service. A delivery boy himself, Casey identified a need for an efficient means of transporting packages from place to place, and established a small company to meet that need. That need expanded, and the company along with it. Today, when we are able to transport data and information (what's the difference?) with such incredible speed and ease, the transportation of atoms from place to place is often seen as an outdated, anachronistic, endeavor. But it's still a complex and complicated task, and, in some sort of full circle fashion, the UPS has integrated internet use into the tracking of packages, putting bits to use in the service of atoms.
