This Thursday, March 22nd is National Goof Off Day.  Observed annually, it is a day to, well, goof off and do something fun. Everybody needs a break from time to time, so this Thursday, stop, take a break, find something different – even if it is only for an hour or two during the day.  


Did You Know

On March 25, 1995, the world's first Wiki, WikiWikiWeb, was created when Ward Cunningham invited people to add and edit content on the Portland Pattern Repository on the topic of software design patterns. The inspiration of the name, Wiki, came from the Wiki Wiki Shuttle bus in Hawaii where "wiki' is Hawaiian for "quick." Six years after the introduction of Wiki, Wikipedia launched.
