[No, you silly people. We did not name our kid Samuel Morse, and no the baby hasn’t arrived yet…]
I think the blogosphere should take a couple of minutes on April 27 and observe the birthday of Samuel Morse, creator of the telegraph system and Morse code – pretty much the Adam and Eve of blogging and Twitter and all that. Heck, Twitter is essentially an out-of-control virus of telegrams, but I digress.
What did the first telegram say 165 years ago?
“What hath God wrought”
Indeed this is something we’re still trying to figure out. But without all that, we would never have been able to have all you cool readers and our community of friends and supporters out there! So, thanks Sam!
But we’re still not naming our kid after you.
