Happy Birthday WWW.
On this day, in Anno Domini 1991, the web went online. Fifteen short years, and here I am blogging. I remember those days. We had "freenets" set up by unis and community action groups, we had email with addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org ( I think that was mine at the Cleveland Freenet!) and we had bulletin boards that you had to dial into (no broadband in those days and no ISP's! You dialed into each BBS individually!). I was blessed because I had access to the mainframe at the University of Kansas and my favourite BBS in Kansas City had established a local calling number in Lawrence. I rember being boggled by the speed, even then. I had a correspondent in Vladivostok. I emailed him one morning and it took 1.5 seconds for the message to be received! In those primitive days, I knew the route the message took: from the KU mainframe to Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS, to a mainframe in Albany, NY, to Copenhagen, Danemark, to the Kremlin in Moscow and out to Vladivostok, where the mainframe delivered it to him.
To use the words of Alexander Graham Bell, "What hath God wrought!" Let us use this technology for His glory and the Triumph of the Social Reign of the Sacred Heart of Christ the King and the Immaculate Heart of His most holy Mother, Mary, our Queen!
