This Friday, December 8th is Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day. As a Dr. Who fan, I have to say that I’m onboard with this day. One blog started this day on December 4, 2007 and since then, every year on December 8th, we have a day just to act like a time traveler. Two questions for you: What is your favorite time traveler book, movie or television show? If you could travel to the past or future, when and where would you go?

16 years ago yesterday, the Segway was unveiled. That’s right, on December 3, 2001, the inventor of the Segway, Dean Kamen, unveiled the self-balancing, battery-powered vehicle on Good Morning America. To keep it upright while in use, the Segway uses computers and motors in the base. While the Segway hasn’t been a commercial success, it is still to this day one method of personal transportation. 


Have a great week and keep networking!
