Great Moments in Telecommunications

  • over 2 MILLION B.C.: early human pounds stone against a log "thats pretty cool" he thinks to himself
  • about 100k B.C.: Prehistoric homo sapiens get into first shouting contest.
  • 1844 A.D.: "What hath God wrought" - Samuel Morse's first telegraph message.
  • 2758 A.D : First extraterrestrial "video" signal received from a region near the Pleiades. Scientists are baffled until they realize that the images they are seeing are the cultural equivalent of a childrens cartoon.
