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.
