Today, November 13th is World Kindness Day, a day to to be, and spread, kindness. Studies show that when others observe kindness, they’re more likely to carry out an act of kindness too. To observe World Kindness Day, make an even bigger effort to be kind and try to get caught in the act to help encourage others. 


Did You Know

That on November 11, 1973 that Ethernet was born. Invented by Robert Metcalfe and David Boggs, an Ethernet network functioned for the first time. Some say that Ethernet was born on May 22, 1973 when Metcalfe circulated a memo containing the schematic of how it worked and marking the first time the Ethernet appears as a word. But, Boggs disagrees and identified November 11, 1973 as it was the first day the system actually functioned. Happy birthday, Ethernet! 



Have a great week and keep networking!
