Harriet Powers

Just three days to NaPodPoMo (national podcast post month)

Today is National Internet Day.  Why?  Well on this day in 1969 - 52 years ago - Charley Kline, a young grad student on the UCLA campus sent the first internet message to his colleague, Bill Duvall, at Stanford.  Another man, a computer scientist named Joseph Licklider, also deserves credit for being an internet pioneer with an early vision of a worldwide computer network long before it was built.

Born on this day in 1837 in Clarke County, Georgia,  African-American slave and quilt maker Harriet Powers.

Today's word is appliqué.
