Welcome back from the weekend! For today's fun fact, I learned that on September 12, 1940, the Lascaux cave paintings were discovered near Montignac, France. As the artwork is between 15,000 and 17,000 years old, it's a fascinating look at how past civilizations communicated. So, one could argue the Ciena Community is carrying on the traditions of our ancestors (in a way?). What do you think?
